Exxon Ignored Safety Risks in Lead-up to 200,000 Gallon Oil Spill

Exxon Ignored Safety Risks in Lead-up to 200,000 Gallon Oil Spill | Oil Spill | Scoop.it
Federal regulators investigating a crude oil spill in Arkansas have concluded that in the years before the accident, pipeline owner ExxonMobil dragged its feet on critical repairs and inspections, ignored evidence that the pipeline was disposed to failure, and cherry-picked data to downplay the risk of an accident.

Nicholas Rowland's curator insight, March 9, 9:15 PM

Taking the risk to ignore critical assessments made on the use of Exxon's faulty pipeline has lead the company to face a fine of $2.66 million for the 210 000 gallon oil spill in Arkansas.  Once again, poor risk management decisions were made despite being fully aware that the possibility of the disaster occuring was great.  To work in this industry it is obvious that by ignoring risk management processes, the consequences and repercussions are devastating to the community and environment.  Companies can minimise the risk of these accidents occuring and avoid both financial and legal liability, which in my opinion is much more beneficial.

#Dolphins #dying in droves and scientists can't stop it - Deepwater Horizon #oilspill | Oil Spill | Scoop.it

Tampa Bay Times, November 16, 2013

DOLPHINS ARE DYING IN DROVES AND SCIENTISTS CAN'T STOP IT

What makes so many deaths disturbing, he said, is that dolphins are regarded as "sentinels for ocean and human health," not unlike canaries in a coal mine.

Dolphins are dying all around Florida and scientists don't know how to stop it.The die-offs of bottlenose dolphins are going on in three different places, and appear to be from more than one cause. Although dolphins are not an endangered species, the loss of so many all at once is clearly bad news, scientists say.
