"Yeah but that was offered as a response to 'British Petroleum' when in reality it was a one-sided thinly-disguised tirade against Hayward and BP - no suspicions there then . Usually people form opinions having heard both sides of the story - you seem to be happy doing so listening to only one side."
You must have read a different article than the one posted in the first post in this topic.
Here are a couple of dictionary definitions for tirade
• a prolonged outburst of bitter, outspoken denunciation
• a speech of violent denunciation
What I read was a calm and reasoned analysis of the testimony that BP provided to Congress.
As to your accusation that I am listening to only one side of the story is quite inaccurate. In my previous occupation I was associated with the oil industry as a supplier of safety supplies for over 20 years. I have been interested to find the truth of what happened in this incident to the point of reading many sides of this story for the last two months. Many, many industry experts have come to the same conclusions about what happened and what was stated in the posted article. The only ones who seem to disagree or are not saying anything are spokespersons for BP.
On the other hand your mind seems to closed to industry expert analysis. The facts are speaking for themselves to anyone who is willing to take the time to do a bit of study of the oil industry.
Not much more to say except I hope the relief well works.
In the legal world judgments will eventually be handed down, likely years from now.
In the real world of everyday work in the oil patch experts needed to know asap what caused this incident to avoid a similar incident from happening in the future. There is no bias in this technical analysis. Doesn't matter if it was BP, Chevron, Shell, Exxon, Samson, whoever. The need for the truth is the same. Knowing what happened to prevent it in the future could be a matter of life and death.
I have read literally hundreds of articles covering all facets of the incident to learn more. If you choose not to believe that then there is nothing more I can say.
