The Department of the Interior has been rather understanding in their approach and has taken the biggest steps in reform by dismantling their own government agency the Minerals Management Services. Often under scrutiny for misconduct, it was only a matter of good timing as to when the MMS became a thing of the past. It has now become the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management, Regulation and Enforcement that emphasizes revision rather than reform. In an industry where stagnancy leads to opposition, the BOEMRE has allowed for the moratorium to be lifted and those operators to continue production upon approval of compliance with new regulations. These are mostly found as NTL's( Notices to Lessees) and safety compliance notices. It is for certain that industry standards have been changed for good with the all operations requiring blind sheet rams, a tool that hasn't been up for review since 2004 ( stated in the last review as requiring diligent usage in it's capabilities.)

While we constantly move along through this troublesome economy, let us refresh our memory of the catastrophe that brouht about many innovative ideas and questions? Perhaps the oil industry's predictive guide, Hubbert's Peak, includes a time in which innovation and creativeness are representative of our peak in intelligence. Have underlying dynamics really taken effect? A British Petroleum employee simply stated the cause as "mother natures kick,"The Truth Channel, JustinTv.com. When hydrates are dissociated from the drill string a expulsion of fluids results in a "kick." This unpredictable occurrence often said to take place in the "thief zone" has been a priority for the industry (see Pop Goes the Polymer.) The formation is given the "suicide squeeze," or a downhole scale inhibitor squeeze, that cleaves the MIC (minimum inhibitory concentration) and a displaced slug ( as you can see) can leave "branes" splattered everywhere. It's sounds like the latest crime-drama. So then is it? Are their actually those entities pulling the strings getting a kick (no pun intended) out of what's happening at the tip of the boot? Is it the puppetmaster or the thief that caused the explosion. Shallow pockets in the reservoir where water is more permeable. 85% of the oil was supposed to have been recovered with an attempt to lower a dome over the seepage hole. This only resulted in the cage like formation of methane hydrates within the cage-like containment structure crystallizing within the equipment.Shipping routes are always crucial and possible dredging could allow for new routes The oil industry is ever evolving in their technical expertise and the rare catastrophic event at hand is the result of risks taken on a grand scale. If the specific details of what occurred on the ocean floor could be understood by us all then perhaps we would not be quick to blame BP, though we are not all scientists. The daily risks a fisherman takes maybe easier to understand and so we can relate. Both may agree that mother nature has its kicks. BP's response time is what they must take full "respons"ibility for.
With all the Gulf of Mexico reports to read in gathering information for your use, it can be time consuming and misleading when needed for research. You'll find the following will orient you in the right direction. The Interim Report on Causes of the Deepwater Horizon Oil Rig Blowout as of November 2010 is data provided by the National Academies, Advisers to the Nation on Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine as requested by tSecretary of the Interior Kenneth Salazar. The November 2010 report outlines a change in policy, good material to have in your reference portfolio. Mineral Management System turned into just the BOEMRE. It points out key investigative topics to follow up with.
