BP Kept Drilling After Report of Leak, Worker Says

BP Kept Drilling After Report of Leak, Worker Says 21 Jul 2010 Government investigators looking into the causes of the Deepwater Horizon oil rig explosion are colliding with a frequent obstacle: witnesses canceling their scheduled testimonies. So far, nine witnesses have rejected or delayed testimony here before a panel of federal government officials. Many were top-ranking officials aboard the rig, with critical roles in decisions that may have contributed to the disaster... In Tuesday’s hearings, investigators focused on equipment failures leading up to the explosion. A BP official, Ronald Sepulvado, a well site leader, testified that BP continued drilling for oil in the days before the disaster despite internal reports of a leak on a safety device on the rig.
