Gulf of Mexico: BP to Help Investigation of Deepwater Horizon Tragedy

BP today announced its support for and cooperation with U.S. government investigations arising from the sinking of the Transocean drilling rig Deepwater Horizon in Mississippi Canyon Block 252 (MC252) in the Gulf of Mexico.

“Losing 11 of our industry colleagues is a tragedy for the offshore community,” said BP Group Chief Executive Tony Hayward. “As an industry, we must participate fully in these investigations and not rest until the causes of this tragedy are known and measures are taken to see that it never happens again.”

The Department of the Interior and Department of Homeland Security announced a joint enquiry into the explosion and sinking of the Transocean Deepwater Horizon on April 22. The U.S. House of Representatives Committee on Energy and Commerce Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations and Senate Committee on Energy and Natural Resources have also announced investigations.

Last week BP launched its own investigation into the incident and has an investigation team at work in Houston, Texas.
