Sunday, August 08, 2010

According to an August 6 report from Environment News Service, suffering deep financial losses from the Deepwater Horizon oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, and in response to a proliferation of deepwater offshore drilling for oil worldwide, investors have sent a joint letter to 27 major oil companies seeking transparency on risk reduction strategies for their offshore oil operations. Fifty-eight investors in the United States and Europe, representing trillions of dollars in assets, sent the request for more information to chief executive officers at the oil companies, including the world's three largest deepwater oil producers - ExxonMobil, Royal Dutch Shell and Brazil's state-owned oil company Petrobras.
