Bloomberg Reports that BP Investigation Blames Engineers for Misreading Pressure Data

Bloomberg reports that an unreleased internal BP report on the BP Deepwater Horizon accident found that the accident was caused by engineers (commonly called a “company man”) misinterpreting pressure data that indicated a blowout was imminent. The article says that BP plans to release the report in the next 10 days.

Bloomberg says that the report is 200 pages long and details the investigation led by Mark Bly, the head of safety and operations.
