Publisher's Summary

The truth behind the greatest environmental disaster in U.S. history....

In 2005, fifteen workers were killed when BP's Texas City Refinery exploded. In 2006, corroded pipes owned by BP led to an oil spill in Alaska. Now, in 2010, eleven men drilling for BP were killed in the blowout of the Macondo well in the Gulf of Mexico.

What's next? In In Too Deep: BP and the Drilling Race That Took it Down, Stanley Reed a journalist who has covered BP for over a decade and investigative reporter Alison Fitzgerald answer not only that question, but also examine why these disasters happen to BP so much more than other large oil companies.

  • Places the blame on a corporate culture created by former BP CEO John Browne who was forcaned to resign in 2007 after he lied in court documents in a case involving his gay lover
  • Details a BP built on risk-taking and cost-cutting
  • Examines the past, present, and future of BP
  • In August 2010, BP successfully "killed" the company's damaged deepwater well. But, the environmental fallout and public relations campaign to rebuild the brand are just beginning. In Too Deep details why BP, why now, and what's next for this oil giant.

    "Biased Naritive"

    A simplistic analysis of a complex industry, a misfortnat accident, and rich history. Daniel Yergin's books remained the best classics that captures the multifaceted nature of the energy industry.
