SPE Issues New Report on Safety

The Society of Petroleum Engineers has issued a new report on safety:


Lots of focus on crews, not so much on the people who deal the hand the crews have to play. And no mention of the elephant in the room, which is the industry’s steadfast refusal to accept or even recognize the importance of survivable event data recorders (“black boxes”) in accident and near-miss analysis.



Boo…but I bet nobody is surprised.
