10 Years After Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill, Industry Says It's Better Prepared

"Ten years ago an explosion on the deepwater horizon drilling rig in the Gulf of Mexico killed eleven people and oil gushed into the Gulf for almost three months today. Offshore drilling is more regulated but has enough been done to prevent another accident. Here's NPR's Jeff Brady one of the biggest changes since the deepwater horizon accident is on the Gulf coast near Corpus Christi Texas at the Dockside Facility of marine well containment company with the wind blowing. Ceo David Nickerson shows off five capping. Stacks similar to the device that finally stopped crude flowing into the goal. Each one of them is about as tall as a two story building the heaviest one the largest one that we have which is over here ways almost as much as forty full-sized. Suv's Nickerson says for big oil companies. Put up a billion dollars to create the company in two thousand ten six more joined sense then. The company's only job is to respond to the next well blowout when they give us the word go. We can get offshore with the cabinet stack. Hopefully at the well capped off within the matter of a week right. So that's about ten times faster than it took the shut off flow during deepwater horizon. If they can't stop the oil right away. There's a fleet of equipment to capture it. Put it in tankers and bring it onshore ten years ago absolutely none of this existed. All of this has been built directly responsive horizon incident. This is on the response side. There's also been changes to prevent an accident including stricter regulations. The Obama Administration created the bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement Director. Scott on Gel recently offered members of Congress a positive view of what the bureau has accomplished. We've made our regulation safer when comparing the past six years of inspection data. We've increased the number of inspections by twenty six percent increase the number of inspections per facility by six percent increase. The number of inspectors by twelve percent but before on Gel was a regulator of the offshore oil and gas industry. He was a cheerleader for it. Here he is as Louisiana's lieutenant governor at a rally praising the oil industry and taking this dig at the Renewable Energy Business America is not yet ready to get all of its fuel from the birds and the bees and the flowers and the trees among those who want the US to transition to cleaner energy.

The bureau is too cozy with the industry it regulates we've also seen the trump administration rolling back. Some of the far too few safeguards that were put in place as a response to the horizon rolling back things like key measures of the well control. That complex rule was designed to prevent future blowouts and give drillers detailed requirements. They must follow to safely drill in offshore. Well Eric Melito. With the Industry Group National Ocean Industries Association argues that changes during the trump administration strengthen not weaken safety for the past ten years. The industry has had a laser. Like focus on improving and enhancing NHS now. The question is whether enough has been done retired. Coast Guard Admiral Thad Allen. Was the incident commander for the government's deepwater horizon.

"Morning edition from NPR news. Good morning. I'm David green. And I'm Steve Inskeep. The partial government shutdown affects one branch of the United States military. It's the coast guard which normally operates under the department of homeland security, forty two thousand members of the coast guard are considered essential personnel. So they must work. They got a paycheck December thirty first. But it's not clear when they can be paid again, they want answer to Admiral Thad Allen who is a former commandant of the coast guard. He directed the response to Hurricane Katrina years ago. And he's in our studios, Admiral, welcome to the program. I should note you left the coast guard in two thousand ten but there must still be people serving today who served under you, what do you think of their situation? I think is pretty pretty bad. I think when you have people that have Ryan emergency services to this country without pay the well, take a serious look at our government. You mean, you don't agree with this shutdown? Well, I agree that we need to accomplish the ends of the. Country. I don't think this is the right way to do it. We shouldn't hold any agency political hostage negotiations. The president has said that he's hearing from federal workers go on keep going because they want the wall. Are you hearing from coast guard members people that you know, who are still in the service that they agree with this. Coastguard men and women are getting involved in political discussions about the wall. They're trying to do their jobs. Save lives and protect the American public. That's what they're focused on. And they would like to be able to do their jobs and get compensated is the customer to particularly well paid service or paid on par with the other military services. We are just in the department of homeland security rather than the department of defense, and the lack of appropriation is the cause of the problem right now is it true that some members of the coast guard when they are paid or being paid below the poverty level. These are not high paying jobs at all. Well, the supplies all service. If you have your petty officer with the family of with say two or three kids their base pay is below the poverty level established by HHS. Now, they do get allowances for housing that does raise that. But their base pay is below the poverty level. So do you think it is realistic for someone who's in the coast guard and one of those lower paid jobs to miss a few paychecks and not have to worry about it? Too much. No, it's an outrage. What do they do? They're doing their job. And they're dependent on the American public and the people who run the government to make sure they're paid on time. Would you describe what duties they are fulfilling without pay right now. What are the ordinary daily operations of the coast guard? Well, the coast guard is essentially the emergency services in the maritime environment for the country. There are people standing search and rescue watch over every intercoastal on the United States right now. They're cutters patrolling offshore. There's drug interdiction operations going on. We have an icebreaker en route to Antarctica breakout. Mcmurdo so they can resupply. The south pole. All that's continuing McMurdo. That's one of the scientific research stations down there. That's the base station the resupplied south pole. Okay. And so they're actually like trying to cut cut through there that that's actually like a life or death situation that great they break the ice every year to allow the base to be resupplied, which is the base point resupply. The south station. Now, you also said drug interdiction. This is really interesting because President Trump last night in his speech advocating, a border wall talked about the flow of drugs from Latin America. Erica.

They got a paycheck December thirty first. But it's not clear when they can be paid again, they want answer to Admiral Thad Allen who is a former commandant of the coast guard he directed the response to Hurricane Katrina years ago. And he's in our studios, Admiral, welcome to the program. I should note you left the coast guard in two thousand ten but there must still be people serving today who served under you, what do you think of their situation? I think it's pretty pretty bad. I think when you have people that have arrived emergency services to this country without pay the take a serious look at our government. You mean, you don't agree with this shutdown? Well. I agree that we need to accomplish the ends of the country. I don't think this is the right way to do it. We shouldn't hold any agency political hostage to negotiations.

Are you hearing from coast guard members people that you know, who are still in the service that they agree with this. Coastguard men and women are getting involved in political discussions about the wall. They're trying to do their jobs to save lives and protect the American public. That's what they're focused on. And they would like to be able to do their jobs and get compensated is the customer did particularly well paid service or paid on par with the other military services. We are just in the department of homeland security rather than the department of defense, and the appropriation of the cause of the problem right now is it true that some members of the coast guard when they are paid or being paid below the poverty level. These are not high paying jobs at all. Well, this applies to all service. If you have your petty officer with the family with say two or three kids their base pay is below the poverty level established by HHS. Now, they do get allowances for housing that does raise that. But their base pay is below the poverty level. So do you think it is realistic for someone who's in the coast guard and one of those lower paid jobs to miss a few paychecks and not have to worry about it? Too much. No, it's an outrage. What did they do? They're doing their job. And they're dependent on the American public and the people who run this government to make sure they're paying on time. Would you describe what duties they are fulfilling without pay right now. What are the ordinary daily operations of the coast guard? Well, the coast guard is essentially the emergency services in the maritime environment for the country. There are people standing search and rescue watch over every enter coastline the United States right now. There cutters patrolling offshore there's drug interdiction operations going on. We have an icebreaker en route to Antarctica breakout. Mcmurdo so they can resupply. The south pole. All that's continuing McMurdo. That's one of the scientific research stations down there.

They gotta pay check December thirty first, but it's not clear when they can be paid again, they want answer to Admiral Thad Allen who is a former commandant of the coast guard he directed. The response to Hurricane Katrina years ago and easy in our studios. Admiral welcome to the program. I should note you left the coast guard in two thousand ten but there must still be people serving today who served under you, what do you think of their situation? I think it's pretty pretty bad. I think when you have people that have arrived emergency services to this country without pay the take a serious look at our we're governed. You mean, you don't agree with this shutdown? Well. I agree that we need to accomplish the ends of the country. I don't think this is the right way to do it. We shouldn't hold any agency political hostage to negotiations. The president has said that he's hearing from federal workers go on keep going because they want the wall. Are you hearing from coast guard members people that you know, who are still in the service that they agree with this. Coastguard men and women are getting involved in political discussions about the wall. They're trying to do their jobs. Save lives in the protect the American public. That's what they're focused on. And they would like to be able to do their jobs and get compensated is the coast guard, a particularly well paid service or paid on par with the other military services. We are just in the department of homeland security rather than the department offense, and the lack of appropriation is the cause of the problem right now is it true that some members of the coast guard when they are paid or being paid below the poverty level. These are not high paying jobs at all. Well, the supplies all service. If you have your petty officer with the family with say two or three kids their base pay is below the poverty level established by HHS. Now, they do get allowances for housing that does raise that. But their base pay is below the poverty level. So do you think it is realistic for someone who's in the coast guard and one of those lower paid jobs to miss a few paychecks and not have to worry about it? Too much. No, it's an outrage. What do they do? They're doing their job. And they're dependent on the American public and the people who run the government to make sure they're paying on time. Would you describe what duties they are fulfilling without pay right now. What are the ordinary daily operations of the coast guard? Well, the coast guard is essentially the emergency services in the maritime environment for the country. There are people standing search and rescue watch over every inch coastline of the United States. Right now, they're cutters patrolling offshore. There's drug interdiction operations going on. We have an icebreaker en route to Antarctica to break up McMurdo. So they can resupply. The south pole. All that's continuing McMurdo. That's one of the scientific research stations down there. That's the base station the resupplies south pole. Okay. And so they're actually like trying to cut cut through there that that's actually like a life or death situation that they break the ice every year to allow the base to be resupplied, which is the the base point resupply. The south pole station. Now, you also said drug interdiction. This is really interesting because President Trump last night in his speech advocating, a border wall talked about the flow of drugs from Latin America. Erica. We have learned in our fact checking segment that not a lot of those drugs. Go overland illegally. They go through legal ports of entry. There's also some that go by sea, right? The United States coast guard is probably sees more drugs than any agency in the history of this country. When you get a boatload of cocaine off Central America, you're taking tons out of the traffic rather than Altos and pounds, and they would go into an ordinary port if they're not if they're undetected, and they would unload that cocaine and it would get into the United States. Drug flow comes from South America into Mexico and crosses the border. The coastguard strategy is to attack that threat is far away from our shores as we can so off Columbia off the coast of Central America and the Caribbean. We have cutters for deployed trying to stop those drugs before they ever get to Mexico. So let me understand this. If you're concerned about the flow of illegal drugs from Latin America into the United States. What you want to worry about is the coastguard quizzical, isn't it? What do you mean by quizzical doesn't make sense that the that that they would not be paid in the situation? Well, there are other government agencies. We have the department of agriculture the forest service National Park Service. Everybody's in the same same condition right now. We ought to be concerned about it. What does this say about our politics right now? We're having a hard time going in this country. I think we're involved in probably what is the greatest civics lesson in our lifetime right now. What is the lesson? The lesson is that all branches of government have to work together to produce the outcomes American people should expect under the preamble of the constitution. What what advice would you give to members of the coast guard if they reached out to you and just said what what should I do in this situation? What do you want me to do? Well, I think you should continue to do their duty. They will inevitably get back pay. The question is cash flow.
