Oil Safety's Believe it or Not!

Transocean 2009:

Each year, the U.S. Department of the Interior's Mineral Management Service (MMS) picks both District and National recipients of their "Safety Award for Excellence" (SAFE), and again this year, Transocean's strong performance in the U.S. Gulf of Mexico earned recognition at both levels.
BP in the running in 2010:

These awards recognize outstanding safety and pollution prevention performance by the offshore oil and gas industry in four categories.

The 2010 SAFE
Finalists are:
High OCS Activity
BP Exploration & Production Inc.
Eni US Operating Co.
Exxon Mobil Corp
Oops, they postponed the 2010 awards!

The Department of the Interior's Minerals Management Service (MMS) announced today that the 2010 Annual Industry SAFE Awards Luncheon scheduled for May 3, 2010 at the Offshore Technology Conference (OTC) in Houston, Texas has been postponed.

The ongoing situation with the Transocean Deepwater Horizon drilling accident has caused the MMS to dedicate considerable resources to the successful resolution of this event, which will conflict with holding this ceremony next week.

Those pesky spill and safety conficts!
