BP is the lease operator and had BP people on board making the calls. Anytime an incident happens offshore the lease operator is the one held responsible.

Anadarko is a minor partner in the lease....so is Miksui...
They are claiming gross negligence on the part of BP and claim that this absolves them of responsibility...
Did you read the article??? :huh:

Yes I read the article. BP is the lease operator, and the driller, Anadarko and other minority partners are just investors, they allow BP to make all operational desicions and assume all the risk.
