“A litany of failures in the way BP manages critical engineering information may be increasing the risk of major accidents at the oil giant’s plants across the world, according to analysis of an internal report leaked to Energydesk.”
The report contains stuff like this:
This caught my attention, especially because it mentions ‘”repeated near misses” because bad data had led to equipment being used improperly’ at a site Germany, the BP refinery in Lingen.
In the linked Financial Times article it says: ft.com⁄content⁄a62438fc-be36-11e6-8b45-b8b81dd5d080
Also concerning is, that this report mentions BP’s Mad Dog operation in the deep waters of the Gulf of Mexico: http://www.bp.com/en_us/bp-us/what-we-do/exploration-and-production/deepwater-gulf-of-mexico/mad-dog.html
None of the articles linked the report. I searched the articles and the internet for leads on what kind of report this is & who precisely wrote it, with the aim to eventually find it somewhere, but found nothing substantial. It looks like Greenpeace really wanted to protect its source in this case, understandable, regarding whats in there. All I know (from the article) is:
- Its on how BP manages engineering data
- It was compiled in partnership with IBM and WorleyParsons in 2015
- Name of the Report is eventually “Refining and Petrochemicals Engineering – Go, See & Assess Final Report”
This stuff is really interesting to me, so, if you come across this report online anywhere, please let me know.
