Deepwater Horizon RCFA

So BP published it's initial RCFA on the causes of the Deepwater Horizon explosion and sinking.

Full documentation available here.

Already the media is publishing crap. I am in the business of Failure Analysis and am an impartial observer to the BP process. I have read the entire report and believe that they have done a decent job determining the physical causes as well as many of the latent causes of the disaster. They deal with the facts and not with the typical ninth-party fourth-hand inuendo so much of the media likes to use.

I'm sure that Transocean, Halliburton and Cameron will have their own reports out eventually and the comparisons should be entertaining.
