The BP rig that sparked America's biggest oil spill in history missed 16 required inspections in the years leading up to the deadly April explosion that killed 11 workers and sent crude gushing into the Gulf of Mexico.
That's according to newly released government inspection reports that show the Deepwater Horizon rig was only surveyed six times in 2008, even though the government requires drilling rigs to be inspected every month. In total, it missed 16 checks since January 2005.
It's unclear whether the lapse is the fault of federal authorities or BP itself. An Interior Department official told CBS News that a rig sometimes misses inspection if it's being dragged from one location to another, or if there are delays because of the weather.
anyone have a link to the released reports?
This is just an example of what i have and much much more all saved on my harddrive just in case MMS thinks they can block access or remove reports. This been going on for longgggg time.
