BP Oil Spill – Quick Thoughts

It would appear that BP dropped the ball on this one. That’s not to say that our Federal Government didn’t as well.

Some Initial Concerns;

  • Why weren’t well trained and equipped rapid response teams already in place to deal with such emergencies?
  • Was the methane fireball something that could have been reasonably anticipated?

At 5,000 feet the physics changes dramatically, and I would hope that was properly planned for as well.

At any rate, what matters most is finding resolution immediately and tending to the needs of those involved and affected. Our prayers are with the families who have been horribly impacted by this tragedy.
