NASA, Deloitte To Bring Space-Age Risk Management To Oil And Gas Industry, NASA JSC
"NASA Johnson Space Center and Deloitte will enter into a strategic alliance offering advanced risk-management services to oil and gas companies. The Space Act Agreement commencement ceremony is scheduled for 1:30 p.m. Central, Thursday, June 27.
These capabilities include several operational risk-management approaches aimed at companies seeking to minimize the risk of catastrophic failures - the kinds of dramatic mishaps that, while highly unlikely, can occur in remote and harsh environments."
someone points out:
The problem with the Deep Water Horizon incident wasn't inadequate risk modeling tools, it was the willful disregard of risks clearly identified to project owner BP by their experienced contractor, the rig operator Transocean, and the willingness of the contractor to follow the plan set by BP even after clearly saying it was wrong. Wait a minute, that sounds like the Challenger disaster.
