Post-Macondo Interview with retired BP executive Kevin Lacy

“When I left BP I was concerned there might be problems, but when I saw Macondo unfold on the news I was aghast.”

In December 2009, after voicing concerns over safety and not getting management support, veteran drilling executive Kevin Lacy exited as BP’s vice president for drilling and completions in the Gulf of Mexico.

At the time he worried about a convergence of risk factors: significant planned organizational changes, a risk-heavy set of deep water wells, along with tremendous pressure to reduce cost. Four months later came the Macondo blow-out. Here he reveals the circumstances of his departure, and explains why oil and gas is far from being a “high-reliability” sector yet – and how we might start moving in that direction.
