Oil Industry Insider Publicly Calls Out BP for Choosing to Not Follow Safe Practices

Tuesday, May 18th, 2010

Last night, NBC Nightly News reported on the unsafe practices that BP chose to follow prior to the catastrophic explosion and resulting oil spill.  On the show, Ken Abbott, a veteran oil energy manager, stated: “What I realized about BP is they were not following normal accepted safe engineering practice.”  This accusation is alarming and, if such blatant disregard for normal safety practices is proven, BP could end up owing billions in damages for the carnage caused in the Gulf of Mexico and surrounding communities.
