Offshore Drilling Companies argue that new safety and environmental rules announced in October have impeded new drilling in both shallow waters and deeper waters, threatening the industry's future
The new rules focus on making sure blowout preventers work properly. In the case of the BP explosion, the blowout preventer failed to shut off the leaking well as it was designed to. Also, the new rules require companies to be prepared for worst-case oil spill scenarios.
The American Offshore Drilling Industry has become a judge onto themselves. These corporations sit in denial of the truth right in front of them , while the 11 men who died onboard the Deepwater Horizion lay in their graves.
The offshore drilling industry refuses to accept what they assured us could never happen has happened.
Over the years offshore drilling industry corporations have assured the federal government over and over again that all available safety devices and practices have been implemented to prevent a disaster such as the BP / Deepwater Horizion .
Yet , here lays the Deepwater Horizion completely destroyed submerged in 5,000 feet of water , and 11 men dead , and 100's of 1,000's of people and businesses suffering .
The offshore drilling industry supports only thier own industry , refusing to accept the truth that the industry can an must do better when it comes to protecting the safety of the personnel and preserving the environment.
Those pathetic congressmen who have recieved huge amounts of contributions from the offshore drilling companies are no more than sell outs. Speaking out for whom ever pays them , believing in what ever gets them money in their bank account.
This industry and these people don't have the moral substance to do the right thing. They are corrupt with greed and selfishness , persecuting the righteous who stand up for those who cannot speak for themselves.
The 11 men who died onboard the Deepwater Horizion would not agree with these offshore drilling industry spokesmen and congressmen who want to " get back to doing business as usual "
The families of the 11 men who died onboard the Deepwater Horizion would not agree with these companies or spokesmen either.
The offshore drilling companies and congressmen are showing their total lack of concern for the death of the 11 men who died onboard the Deepwater Horizion. These companies and spokesmen have no integrity , no honor , their loyalty is to the money that can be made by " getting over it an getting back to doing business as usual "
Transocean is standing in denial for its part in the disaster which took place and is trying to put the blame on BP , like it or not , Transocean is just as guilty as BP and neserves to be punished in the same maner as BP.
