Assessing Progress

Following the 2010 BP Deepwater Horizon oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, seven Oil Spill Commission Action (OSCA) commissioners released their first report in April 2012—Assessing Progress: Implementing the Recommendations of the National Oil Spill Commission. It provided recommendations for making offshore energy production safer, improving oil spill response, and addressing the impacts on people, economy and the environment. The Commissioners issued their second progress report recently, on April 17, 2013, three days before the third-year anniversary of the disaster. This report, Assessing Progress: Three Years Later, summarizes the Commissioners assessment of what progress has been achieved, and what still needs to be done.
