Nearly two weeks after the tragedy, relatives of the men who died on the Deepwater Horizon plan private memorial services as the world choses to focus on the environmental impact of the worst oil spill in history.The oil rig was positioned 50 miles south of the Louisiana coast and it is now the final resting place of the following 11 men who died in the explosion on 20th April 2010: Aaron Dale Burkeen, 37, from Mississippi. Karl Kleppinger Jr., 38, from Mississippi. Dewey Revette, 48, from Mississippi. Shane Roshto, 22, from Mississippi. Roy Kemp, 27, from Louisiana. Donald Clark, 49, from Louisiana. Stephen Curtis, 40, from Louisiana. Blair Manuel, 56, from Louisiana. Gordon Jones, 29, from Louisiana. Jason Anderson, 35, from Texas. Adam Weise , 24, from Texas. By any yardstick, loss of life on this scale is a major tragedy. We hope that the cause of the explosion is identified as quickly as possible and that health and safety lessons are learned and implemented throughout the oil and gas industry, in all regions of the world where drilling operations are proceeding. Operator safety should be of paramount importance in hazardous environments where workers have the right to expect the highest possible standards that their employers can achieve.
