Deepwater Horizon Rig Disaster Threatens Drilling

British Petroleum​ (BP) is an oil exploration and production company that encourages high risk projects with the potential for high return. Last summer the​ company’s exploration and production​ chief, Andy​ Inglis, is quoted as​ saying, “We​ don’t do simple things. We are prepared to work on the frontier and manage the​ risks.” So far that strategy has paid off for BP. Now that strategic decision is being called into question.
​BP’s earnings for the quarter ending March​ 31, 2010 were​ \$5.6 billion; more than double what they were five years ago.​ However, a recent deepwater drilling rig accident in the Gulf of Mexico killed eleven employees and has spewed over three million barrels of oil into the ocean with no real end in sight. The​ company’s disaster is threatening one of the most productive fisheries in the world and the fragile Gulf ecosystem.
From​ BP’s perspective the disaster may also be threatening the​ company’s future. If the spill is not contained soon it may mark the end of Gulf exploration and drilling. The practice may be deemed too​ risky, both politically and environmentally. For a company that has staked much of its future on the​ Gulf, it may also signal the end of BP. Investors are abandoning BP and the company has lost over​ \$30 billion in market capitalization since the disaster.
