Transocean CEO: Rig Workers Should Have Done More To Detect Trouble

"Transocean's chief executive testified Tuesday during the BP oil spill civil suit in New Orleans that employees should have done more to detect signs of trouble before the company's drilling rig exploded in the Gulf of Mexico in 2010."

However, according to The Associated Press, the drilling company's investigation didn't find any mistakes beyond the rig floor, Transocean Ltd. president and CEO Steven Newman said.

The trial is in its 14th day and will determine the causes of BP's well blowout and to assign fault to the companies involved.

Newman said Transocean didn't identify any 'management failures' either."
