Group founded by peraspera
Gulf Watchers started as a liveblog to cover the BP Macondo blowout, including live coverage of the ROVs not available elsewhere. GW continues to bear witness to the devastating aftermath even as the story has faded from the forefront of traditional media attention.
We also cover current and developing issues related to all oil companies.
