Halliburton (HAL +3.1%) is searching for a seven-inch tube containing radioactive material that went missing in West Texas earlier this week. The tube is used in the measuring and evaluating of conditions within oil and gas wells; HAL warns the public not to touch or handle it. Shares are rising along with other energy and materials stocks in the post-Fed glow.

    Well, I guess that's one way to draw attention.

    Maybe it's in the Gulf with the no-eye, no-claw shrimp and various other mutated sea creatures.

    Oh this makes my heart drop. Not for the minor problems the radiation would cause in 20 years, but the headach of finding and reporting a lost source. FYI the chemical sources used in well logging as very low activity sources, depending on what type it was from 5ci to 15ci, but most likely it was a 5ci since they are the most common. To put it in perspective you get more radiation from the X-Ray machine at the doc' s office than one of these sources, although the energy is a bit different.
