You know, I don't mean to sound like a complete smart a**, but at some piont, one might begin to question whether the oil companies actually give a crap about safety or the environment. I mean, they have not even finished capping the BP well. BP is how many billions of dollars in the red? Lost their CEO. Countless people out of work. Untold loss of marine life. Untold environmental disaster for untold years... if not permanent.
YOU WOULD THINK, THINK, THAT THE OTHER RIG OWNERS WOULD HAVE REVIEWED SAFETY PROTOCOLS AND GONE OVER EVERY POSSIBLE METHOD OF KEEPING A SIMILAR DISASTER FROM HAPPENING TO THEM!! I sometimes wonder if the only way to get through to some people/companies, is to sue the so badly that they go out of business.
DO I sound a little perturbed?? Sorry, I am. Luckily they have an entire multibillion dollar corporation (BP) right next door that can provide them all kinds of advice on how to clean up an oil spill - if you call that cleaning up.
