Update 7: Talk about..

May 17, 2010

I’ll be filing this topic as significant backstory to the Mex Gulf ( and likely other locations, too) operators..

and I suggest you do so as well…

culpability, perceived and successfully prosecuted, can be so useful for later damages tallies.. ( my emphasis )

The Coast Guard inspections follow up on the monitoring done by the classification society for the flag state. Gifford ( to the Senate inquiry Committee) said the Deepwater Horizon used the Marshall Islands’ flag as a “flag of convenience” so it could comply with that country’s standards, and not the U.S. regulations.

BTW: BP took a pounding on Letterman the other day and funny tho the fellow tried to make this disaster, for me the wordings all came across weak. I guess even he has to ‘watch his step’ on the litigation lawns..
