This trial is definitely necessary to implement of the failure of protecting the Gulf of Mexico from oil spills. A rig had exploded in the Gulf of Mexico back 2010 and the PLC didnít implement a two-year-old safety management program causing the explosion. The Deepwater Horizon is now on trial so it will pay for the oil spill made by its rig.
NEW ORLEANS --†BP failed to implement a new safety plan on the ill-fated Deepwater Horizon drilling rig even though the company realized a blowout in the Gulf of Mexico was its greatest danger, an expert witness for people and businesses suing the company testified Tuesday.
University of California-Berkeley engineering professor Robert Bea was the first witness at a civil trial to determine how much more BP and other companies should pay for the spill. Bea said BP PLC didn't implement a two-year-old safety management program on the rig that exploded in the Gulf of Mexico in 2010.
