BP statement on Deepwater Horizon movie

Release date:
September 29, 2016

The following statement can be attributed to Geoff Morrell, SVP of U.S. Communications & External Affairs. 


The Deepwater Horizon movie is Hollywood's take on a tragic and complex accident. It is not an accurate portrayal of the events that led to the accident, our people, or the character of our company. In fact, it ignores the conclusions reached by every official investigation: that the accident was the result of multiple errors made by a number of companies. Coming as it does six-and-a-half years after the accident, the movie also does not reflect who we are today, the lengths we’ve gone to restore the Gulf, the work we've done to become safer, and the trust we’ve earned back around the world.
