The Macondo accident: 2010-14

We have prepared a title list of 4 years of reporting by Mexico Energy Intelligence (MEI) on the Deepwater Horizon/Macondo accident of 2010. During this time, neither the government nor industry has taken ownership of the role of human error in the unfolding of that accident.

Evidence? People still talk about “Stop Work Authority,” as if that notion had any credibility or relevance in matters of process safety. At the end of OTC 2013, BSEE published a list of attributes of a “culture of safety,” but simultaneously announced that compliance would not be audited.

You may download this title list here. The title list will be periodically updated.
