The following link is for the Shell Brent Scandal Fatal Accident Report published on 18 July 2006.

EXTRACT: “During the course of the inquiry it became apparent that evidence relating to the condition of certain valves on the platform might be relevant to the cause of the deaths of the two men, or have contributed to the incident which resulted in their deaths. However certain evidence, such as the possible consequences to the structure of the platform, and its crew, of the ignition of the vapour within the utility shaft, while of concern to some of the parties and no doubt of importance to the offshore oil industry and those who work in it, was, in my opinion, beyond the scope of the 1976 Act and more appropriate for consideration at an inquiry of a more general nature.” and its sister non-profit websites,,,,,, and are owned by John Donovan.
