Oil spill: BP had wrong diagram to close blowout preventer

Oil spill: BP had wrong diagram to close blowout preventer 12 May 2010 In the days after an oil well spun out of control in the Gulf of Mexico, BP engineers tried to activate a huge piece of underwater safety equipment but failed because the device had been so altered that diagrams BP got from the equipment's owner didn't match the supposedly failsafe device's configuration, congressional investigators said Wednesday. The oil well also failed at least one critical pressure test on the day that gas surged up the drill pipe and set the Deepwater Horizon drilling rig aflame, killing 11 and setting off [a large oil spill]  according to BP documents provided to congressional investigators.
