The presidential commission investigating last year’s BP Gulf Oil Spill has concluded that BP and other companies cut corners on safety protocols in order to save time and money, which contributed to the explosion of the Deepwater Horizon oil rig and the subsequent massive spill. The report, to be released in full next week, criticizes BP along with contractors Halliburton and Transocean for design flaws, improper testing, and failure to recognize warning signs.

The oil spill panel cited problems with the underwater cement seal as a critical problem that greatly increased the risk for the type of disaster that occurred last April. The commission also concludes that US federal regulators failed to perform thorough oversight of the project, saying this is a systemic problem. The relationship between regulators at the Minerals Management Service and the oil industry has been the subject of widespread criticism, which led to a restructuring of government oversight of offshore well drilling.

The BP oil spill has had a severe impact on the already troubled economy of Alabama and the entire Gulf Coast. The law firm of Long & Long is committed to helping people in Mobile and throughout Alabama hold BP and its partners accountable for the damage they have caused.
