‘Lack of operating discipline’ contributed to BP spill, engineers’ report says; Wash. Post, Nov. 18

A panel of scientific experts studying the Gulf of Mexico oil spill has concluded that “an insufficient consideration of risk and a lack of operating discipline” contributed to the disaster, adding that key “decisions also raise questions about the adequacy of operating knowledge on the part of key personnel” on the ill-fated drilling rig.

The full report, titled Interim Report on Causes of the Deepwater Horizon Oil Rig Blowout and Ways to Prevent Such Events , is available from the National Academy of Sciences, both online and in hardcopy.
