Offshore staff

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Following investigation, the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management, Regulation, and Enforcement says BP Exploration and Oil Inc. did maintain the required “as-built” drawings of the Atlantis facility in the Gulf of Mexico. The investigation is part of a lawsuit by a contractor.

The suit by a contractor alleges absence of these documents created safety risks for the facility and its personnel. The investigation included interviews of 29 people and analysis of more than 3,400 engineering drawings and related documents, and found the majority of the allegations to be unfounded. The investigation also says allegations that BP made false submissions to BOEMRE were unfounded.
