Review È Drowning in Oil 100 O much oil ended up in the Gulf of Mexico BusinessWeek Steffy's investigations reveal a corporate culture of cost cutting initiatives that put profits ahead of workers' lives and the environment with repeated safety violations and an abysmal accident history Steffy details how in the context of BP's record the disaster was just part of a pattern of poor decision making in the relentless pursuit by BP to become the largest and most profitable oil company in the world Booklist About the BookAs night settled on April 20 2010 a series of explosions rocked Deepwater Horizon the immense semisubmersible drilling platform leased by British Petroleum located 40 miles off the Louisiana coast The ensuing inferno claimed 11 lives and it would rage uncontained for two days until its wreckage sank to a final resting place nearly a mile beneath the waves On the ocean floor the unit's wellhead erupted Over the next ten weeks as repeated attempts to cap the geyser failed an estimated 200 million gallons of oil the euivalent of 20 Exxon Valdez spills spewed into the Gulf of Mexico eventually lapping up on beaches as far away as Florida Drowning in Oil by award winning Houston Chronicle business reporter and columnist Loren Steffy considered by many to be the writer with the best access to the story is an unprecedented and gripping narrative of this catastrophe and how BP's winner take all business culture made it all but inevitableThrough never before published interviews with BP executives and employees environmental experts and oil industry insiders Steffy takes us behind the scenes of 100 years of BP corporate history Beginning with the conglomerate's early gambits in the Middle East to its recent ascent among energy.

Review È Drowning in Oil 100 Titans Steff unearths the roots of the Gulf oil spill in the unwritten bargain between oil producers and consumers whose insatiable appetites drive the search for new supplies faster farther and deeperBeyond this the Deepwater Horizon disaster took place after a history of cost cutting in pursuit of profits particularly under the guidance of its two most recent ex CEOs John Browne and Anthony HaywardExhaustively researched and documented Drowning in Oil is the first in depth examination of how a lack of corporate responsibility and government oversight led to the biggest offshore oil spill in US history It is an objective no punches pulled account of the energy industry its environmental impact and the intense competition among stakeholders in today's oil marketsThis book puts all the pieces together offering a definitive account of BP's pursuit of outsized profits as the industrial world awakens to the grim realities of Peak Oil They fumbled around the darkened room and found an instruction manual By flashlight they read the starting procedures They were doing everything right After five or six futile tries they gave up and headed back toward the bridge Back on the bridge alarms were shrieking and the captain knew they were running out of time The subsea engineer had hit the emergency disconnect for the well and although the control panel showed the rig should be free it wasn't The hydraulics were dead Fire continued to shoot from the top of the derrick The rig had no power and without power it had no pumps for the firefighting euipment no way to shut off the flow of gas from the well and no way to disconnect the rig from the flaming umbilical that had it tethered to the wellhead from Drowning in Oil. Don t let the corny name fool you this book provides an excellent analysis of BP s corporate culture under former CEO John Browne and how that culture culminated in the explosion at BP s Texas City refinery BP s pipeline spill in Alaska and the blowout of the Macando well Browne emphasized cost cutting above all else which resulted in a neglect of proper safety procedures and a decline in BP s engineering capability I enjoyed this book because the author incorporated biographical elements of John Brown and Tony Hayward both former CEOs an overview of the history of BP as the Anglo Iranian Oil Company and the ultimate transformation of BP under John Browne in a global power with a reputation for tight budgets The author also dives into the details behind many of BP s uestionable operations with particular emphasis on the Macando well and Deepwater Horizon explosionI would recommend this book to anyone interested in the oil and gas industry learning about BP s 2010 Gulf oil spill and anyone looking for an example of how a poor corporate culture can implode a successful company

Review È Drowning in Oil 100 The definitive account of how BP's win at all costs culture led to this era's greatest industrial catastrophe A carefully and powerfully written story Financial Times When an author uses a loaded word like 'reckless' in a book's title the burden of proof is high Steffy meets the burden by demonstrating that corporate behemoth BP formerly British Petroleum could have prevented the 11 deaths on April 20 2010 aboard the Deepwater Horizon The deaths and the gigantic oil spill following the sinking of Deepwater Horizon will surely become a landmark of corporate ineptness and greed for the remainder of human history thanks in part to Steffy's remarkable account San Antonio Express News Steffy has produced a fascinating gripping revealing account The book details events aboard the Deepwater Horizon in April of 2010 to start but it digs deeper into what is revealed as a culture of cost cutting boiling over within BP Steffy documents years of incidents and poor management decisions detailing the rise of key characters like John Browne and Tony Hayward alongside riveting outlines of horrifying events in Texas City and at other BP locations The book reads like fiction at times with the author's heavily detailed accounts of explosions and conversations creating vivid nearly fantastical images The tragic history of BP is all too real though as the lost lives and environmental damage certainly attest to Steffy is a thorough straightforward author His concerns largely lie with the loss of life and the general culture of cost cutting of BP painting an apt and terrifying picture of rampant steady costly neglect Seattle Post Intelligencer Steffy provides valuable insight and crucial corporate context in explaining how s. Drowning in Oil was incredibly interesting and well written I found it very informative without ever being dry Steffy s knowledge and background in the industry made him the perfect person to write this book His experience as a journalist paid off with absolutely stellar descriptions I ve never read a non fiction that made you feel as if you were in the middle of the action the way this one didI also felt like the writing remained non judgmental in spite of being clear about who was to blame for the many accidents BP has suffered over the years An impressive featI picked this up because I wanted to hear about the Deepwater Horizon fiasco but I ended up learning uite a bit about the oil industry the government agencies that control it and especially about BP Steffy made corporate history riveting
