Coast Guard Capt. investigates BP oil spill

Posted on August 26th, 2010 No Comments

An investigator is looking into what caused the explosion of the BP oil rig on April 20 and the findings have shown that there were multiple people making major decisions on the rig that may have lead to serious confusion.

The investigator, U.S. Coast Guard Capt., described the leadership on the rig as a “murky command structure” because commands were made by at least three different people.

The investigator also expressed disappointment that BP officials could not answer questions on how they could drill more safely during their operations and that they were unaware of previous lessons that should have been learned from other oil spill disasters in the past few decades.
