I have absolutely no idea why, but an annual luncheon scheduled for next week in Houston that celebrates the safety record of offshore oil drilling has been postponed. At last year’s luncheon, BP, the operator of the deep-water oil rig that exploded and sank in the gulf last week, causing one of the largest oil spills ever, won two awards. The awards are given to organizations “whose exceptional performance has raised the bar for safety achievement, improved environmental protection, enhanced resource recovery and conservation, or inspired innovation and outstanding performance by others.” No word yet if they are going to ask BP to give the awards back.
