Where is the CSB’s Deepwater Horizon Accident Preliminary Report?

Last April, a CSB press release said that the CSB planned a preliminary report, findings, and recommendations about the Deepwater Horizon Accident to be released in 2012 and a final report in early 2013.

I went looking for the preliminary report on their web site today and couldn’t find anything except information on performance indicators in the offshore industry that were discussed in a July 2012 public hearing (pictured above). Here a link to the applicable page:


Did I miss something? We are now past the end of 2012 and still no preliminary report.

April 20, 2013, will be the three year anniversary of the blowout and explosion that resulted in the death of 11 workers and a very large oil spill (how large is still being litigated). Let’s hope the CSB has a preliminary and a final report out before then.
