Evacuate The North Sea Region. This is NOT a Drill.

"Hayward tells committee of MPs that there are no fundamental weaknesses in BP's North Sea operations, saying he has made safety the firm's top priority"
Yes, that's Tony "I want my life back" Hayward. Demonstrating the depths of BP's commitment to safety first, The Guardian reports
  • inspections on BP's North Sea installations found some did not comply with guidelines over regular training for operators on how to respond to an incident.
  • inspectors also found the firm had not conducted oil spill exercises properly at some of its offshore sites.
Hayward stated bluntly, "We have made the safe and reliable operations the number one priority of BP." He then didn't add, "Making scads of cash really isn't the point, now, is it?"
