Are the safety requirements for British Petroleum (BP) different...
for them when they drill in the North Sea (off the coast of Britain) versus when they drill in the Gulf (off the coast of the U.S.)?
BP is learning a valuable lesson from the Gulf disaster. They will carry their lesson to other parts of the world...you'd think they will.(I don't think so). I'm ranting now...
The safety requirements for BP are no different than they are for other oil platforms. From the news reports, BP has been fighting regulations for quite a while. They took shortcuts they knew were dangerous and they are believed to have closed their ears to their own employees who tried to warn the upper management of BP.
So what happened? The *&^* mess we are now experiencing in the the gulf.
No BP did not care about the consequences of what they were doing, they cared about the $$$$. Even with the fines they will be paying, they won't see a significant loss in revenue.
Only if you consider the safety requirements they choose to follow and the ones they do not. They have the poorest safety record of all the other companies, and by leaps and bounds.
