In December 2009 veteran drilling executive Kevin Lacy exited as BP’s vice president for drilling and completions in the Gulf of Mexico. At the time he saw significant planned organizational changes, a risk-heavy set of deep water wells, along with pressure to reduce costs. Four months later came the Macondo blow-out. Here he explains why oil and gas is far from being a “high-reliability” sector yet, and how we might start moving in that direction
Memorial Day is a time when those in the U.S. honor our veteran
war dead. It began three years after the Civil War ended, on May 5, 1868, when the head of an organization of Union veterans — the Grand Army of the Republic (GAR) — established Decoration Day as a time for the nation to decorate the graves of the war dead with flowers. It was decided that Decoration Day should be observed on May 30, because flowers would be in bloom all over the country. The first large observance was held that year at Arlington National Cemetery, across the Potomac River from Washington, D.C., with Gen. and Mrs. Ulysses S. Grant presiding over the ceremonies.
