BP's Wells Doesn't Know Who Was in Charge

Thursday, August 26, 2010

According to an August 26 report from Bloomberg, BP Plc’s Kent Wells, a senior vice president who joined the Gulf of Mexico oil-spill response two days after it began four months ago, said he doesn’t know who was in charge aboard the Deepwater Horizon drilling rig when it exploded in April. Wells, a former chief of shallow-water exploration in the Gulf who has overseen BP’s onshore U.S. natural-gas business since 2007, told the panel he doesn’t know why the company never followed up on audits that showed the Deepwater Horizon was behind on some maintenance and inspections.
