It was supposed to be there last weekend. Maybe BP is doing doing something right.

I guess we should chance it.”

Interesting the the insurance underwriters would not take that bet.

I guess that explains why BP thought there was no need for an acoustic switch as additional backup.

So I guess BP knew they had no need of an acoustic cut off switch as a backup because “fairly regular failures” never happen.

Hit them hard in the pocket book for destroying America’s fishing, marine wildlife and tourism industries not to mention the millions of interdependent jobs and industry and mom & pop stores in 5 states and Latin America.
Why? Because these slimy Oil companies have deep sea oil rigs in Brazil and Norway with better equipment that will/can be shut off , that they NEGLECTED to install in the US because of our corrupt politicians and lobby groups who got PAID!!! Now we get screwed with devastation while they laugh all the way to the bank with obscene profits!
BP knows they can get away with murder in the US…….just payoff the right politicians.
Beyong Petroleum my ass……GET OUT BP and pollute the UK and Europe! We don’t need you here.
Remember Houston refinery disaster? Disasters follow BP!
AMERICA, ITS TIME TO BOYCOTT ALL BP GAS STATIONS AND CONNECT CONVENIENCE STORES !!!!
