    Barclays analysts downplay the impact of the safety notice on offshore drillers ordering inspection of subsea equipment on some Gulf of Mexico drilling rigs for faulty bolts. "While this event poses additional downtime risk for these drillers, we believe the downtime would be limited and can be often mitigated through the course of normal operations," the firm says.

    Shares of oil and gas drillers slide to session lows following a Bloomberg report that drilling regulators had directed offshore operators to halt work on some oil and gas wells in the Gulf of Mexico after discovering faulty bolts on equipment used to prevent blowouts.

    Jim Chanos - a bell-ringer in 2009 when he said there was nothing left to short - says there's plenty to keep his firm busy now. Avoid leveraged natural gas companies "like the plague," he says. Their balance sheets may look okay thanks to perverse accounting rules, but cash flows tell a different story. "It's a pretty good bet" he's short any leveraged players that were buying gas properties 5 years ago and looking to sell now.
