Interior rewrites history, erases BP from list of finalists for safety award

There are probably a lot of things Interior Department officials would like to change about the how they looked at BP Exploration and Production's drilling operations. They've found one thing that they can change -- their website. BP's status as a finalist for the "Safety Award for Excellence" from the disgraced and now-renamed Minerals Management Service has been deleted from Interior's site. Before the April 20 blowout at BP's Macondo well fouled the Gulf of Mexico with millions of gallons of oil, MMS had announced that BP was a finalist for the prize, known as the SAFE award. The other finalists in the "high-activity" drilling category -- meaning those that produce more than 10 million barrels of oil a year -- were Eni U.S. Operating Co. and Exxon Mobil Corp.
