Issue one 2011
A year has passed since the tragic accident at the Deepwater Horizon oil rig in the Gulf of Mexico, in which 11 men lost their lives. The subsequent oil spill lasted 87 days and required an unprecedented response. As BP pauses to mark this difficult event, its chief executive, Bob Dudley, talks to BP Magazine about how the company continues to meet its obligations in the Gulf Coast region, the changes being made in BP and the challenges it still faces. We’ve also created a timeline of last year’s events and we examine one of the graphics that helped explain the scale of the subsea challenge.
The events of 2010 have left BP with a series of commitments, not least to continue putting safety and risk management at the heart of its operations. We meet the team at the SECCO petrochemicals plant in China who has achieved 88.6 million manhours without a fatality or major process safety incident as a consequence. Turning to other parts of the BP business, we report on developments in Oman to bring tight gas reserves online and we find out about one of BP’s new biofuels businesses.
