BP Sues Transocean

NEW ORLEANS, LA – On April 20, 2011, one year after the explosion, fire and sinking of the Deepwater Horizon and subsequent oil spill, BP (British Petroleum) is suing Transocean Ltd, the owner of the oil rig involved in the disaster. In a separate lawsuit, BP is also suing Cameron International, the maker of the Blowout Preventer (BOP) that failed, citing that the device failed to stop the huge oil spill that followed the explosion. The loss was staggering. Not only did the vessel sink to the bottom of the ocean, but 11 workers lost their lives and the blowout preventer failed to prevent the the worst oil spill in U.S. history.
