Transocean Determined To Be At Fault in Gulf Oil Spill

oil rig.jpgThe Coast Guard released a report on Friday which determined Transocean was at fault in the Gulf oil spill disaster. The report found:” Flaws in Transocean Ltd’s emergency training and equipment and a poor safety culture contributed to the deadly Deepwater Horizon drilling rig explosion that led to the Gulf oil spill.”

A spokesperson from Transocean, Brian Kennedy, issued a statement that his company “strongly” disagrees with the Coast Guard’s findings.

There are several more entities that are concluding their investigation and reports.
As for the legislation that has been proposed to address caps on liability for the oil spill disaster, including the harsh restrictions on the wrongful death claims brought by the survivors of those who were needlessly killed in this disaster, no legislation has been enacted so far.
