In the exhaustive discovery conducted in the BP Texas City explosion, this document was uncovered. It was an internal BP document of collected comments from various employees of the BP Texas City facility which was called their ESI survey.
This report included dozens of statements by BP employees expressing concern over the conditions and operations of the Texas City facility. Amazingly, it included the comment we have enlarged, which essentially predicted impending disaster. This document was generated JUST HOURS BEFORE THE EXPLOSION. Amazingly, this particular comment was not only imminently prophetic, it has repeated itself almost exactly five years later, with the sinking of the DEEP HORIZON in the Gulf of Mexico.
Our firm has archived this and 7 million other documents uncovered in the Texas City litigation in a website www.texascityexplosion.com. We have also begun archiving relevant information on the rig disaster at www.gulfcoastdisaster.com.
