BP influence from across the pond comes another rendition of the Blame report for the BP Gulf spill.

I responded to the article in RIGZONE about the blame and now comes another from Reuters are they the same ----bet not. Too much data for reporters to comb through and make sense of but for a few of us veterans that have followed each investigation about the spill, this report like that in Rigzone left many things out. WHY drilling and rig knowledge takes years to assimilate.

The truth of the events and the miss steps taken by BP in this rendition of the report does not harmonize with the truth.

BP is a company that has proven it is dead in the water but still floundering. It is coming apart at the seams from internal and external problems that in my terms “Will never be fixed”.

Significant signs are seen that some of the departed executives from BP are setting up strategies to “piece meal BP better assets and leave OBAMA and Us holding the clean up of the GOM to do on our own.“ If so that may be OBAMA waterloo”

If so too bad for all concerned that have depended on the GOM for years.

Finally to clean up the GOM will cost more than a trillion.
