eBook Published for BP Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill Report

Perseus Distribution has  published an eBook edition of Deep Water: The Gulf Oil Disaster and the Future of Offshore Drilling–the official report by the seven-member National Commission on the BP Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill and Offshore Drilling.

Commissioned by President Barack Obama, the report studied the Deepwater Horizon oil rig disaster that spilled almost five million barrels of oil into the Gulf of Mexico. According to the distributor, this will be the only “eBook of the report” available at the iBookstore, Amazon, BN.com, and other online outlets.

Here’s more from the release: “The Commission’s report offers the American public and policymakers alike the fullest account available of what happened in the Gulf and why, and proposes actions—changes in company behavior, reform of government oversight, and investments in research and technology—required as industry moves forward to meet the nation’s energy needs.”
