Board sets date for release of part of oil spill report
Published: April 22,2014
NEW ORLEANS — A federal agency looking into the 2010 Deepwater Horizon oil rig explosion says it plans to release two volumes of a four-volume report on the disaster on June 5.
The Chemical Safety Board said in a news release that the focus of its investigation is to prevent such accidents in the future. The CSB says it launched the investigation at the request of Congress to examine technical factors in the accident, along with “organizational and cultural” factors that may have contributed.
The April 20, 2010, explosion on a rig under contract to BP killed 11 people and sent millions of gallons of oil spewing into the Gulf of Mexico.
The first two volumes will be released at a public meeting in Houston.
