The article starts out saying:

“An internal BP investigation, detailed for the first time Thursday, recommended that four executives be fired for management shortcomings in a “culture of risk taking” leading up to the 2005 explosion that killed 15 people at BP’s Texas City refinery.

The two-part report of the “management accountability” probe also chastised John Manzoni, the London-based company’s chief executive of refining and marketing, but didn’t call for his termination.

The plant blast investigation, led by BP group vice president Wilhelm Bonse-Geuking, was finished in February but remained under wraps until Thursday, after a Texas appeals court upheld a state district judge’s order that it be made public. BP fought to prevent public identification of the men recommended for firing.”
