A federal panel has issued a report on it’s invsetigation into the Deepwater Horizon Diasater. AP reports the panel places the blame squarely on the shoulders of decision makers with BP

 “BP, as the designated operator under BOEMRE regulations, was ultimately responsible for conducting operations at Macondo in a way that ensured the safety and protection of personnel, equipment, natural resources, and the environment.”    -Federal report

 The panel held hearings in the year following the April 20, 2010 catastrophe. The Coast Guard-Bureau of Ocean Energy Management Regulation and Enforcement investigation was reportedly among the most exhaustive.  The report, issued earlier today, states BP managers & engineers failed to share critical data with Transocean personnel, leading to the the blowout that killed 11 workers, spilled an estimated 200 million gallons of crude oil, did billions of dollars woth of damage along the gulf coast and  plunged the economy of the region into chaos.
