Deepwater Horizon

by Earl Boebert | 02 September 2016
Synopsis
On April 20, 2010, the crew of the floating drill rig Deepwater Horizon lost control of the Macondo oil well 40 miles offshore in the Gulf of Mexico. Escaping gas and oil ignited, destroying the rig, killing 11 crew members, and injuring dozens more. The emergency spiralled into the worst human-made economic and ecological disaster in Gulf Coast history. Senior systems engineers Earl Boebert and James Blossom offer the most comprehensive account to date of BP's Deepwater Horizon oil spill. Sifting through a mountain of evidence generated by the largest civil trial in U.S. history, the authors challenge the commonly accepted explanation that the crew, operating under pressure to cut costs, made mistakes that were compounded by the failure of a key safety device.
