Drowning in Oil: BP & the Reckless Pursuit of Profit

Loren C. Steffy

Award-winning Houston Chronicle journalist Loren Steffy delivers an authoritative and hard-hitting account of the Deepwater Horizon disaster that uncovers disturbing patterns and a troubled corporate culture at BP.

Written by the reporter widely considered to be the closest to BP and the gulf oil spill, Drowning in Oil combines years of expertise, research and new interviews to provide a behind-the scenes look at BP’s long history of putting profits ahead of safety.

Loren Steffy puts a human face to the story, introducing readers to the workers and families tragically affected by these series of accidents at BP. He also explores the impact its recent mistakes will have on global energy markets and questions whether new CEO Bob Dudley can really change BP’s culture.
