Oil Spill Investigations: Montara vs. Deepwater Horizon

The investigation into Australia's Montara oil spill is complete, but not public. Platts reported:

The report of the Australian government's Commission of Inquiry into the leak was handed to the country's Minister for Resources and Energy Martin Ferguson on June 18, but the findings of the inquiry have yet to be made public. The government is currently in caretaker mode ahead of a general election to be held on August 21.

BP's internal investigation was due in early August. It's one of many. Let's hope they're better than Ken Salazar's. He bailed on his charge.

Meanwhile, the people suffer. Fisherman in West Timor have turned to smuggling to support their families. What will fisherman on the Gulf Coast do?
