Documents Show Early Worries About Safety of Rig

Documents Show Early Worries About Safety of Rig 29 May 2010 Internal documents from BP show that there were serious problems and safety concerns with the Deepwater Horizon rig far earlier than those the company described to Congress last week. The problems involved the well casing and the blowout preventer, which are considered critical pieces in the chain of events that led to the disaster on the rig.
