DMandPenfold writes “The UK government gave Chevron the go-ahead in September to drill in the North Sea off the coast of Scotland, in spite of the US oil giant’s admission that its contractor’s spill prediction software constantly crashed and was not a reliable predictor of how far oil could travel if an accident took place. The news comes in a week that US investigations into BP’s disastrous Deepwater Horizon oil spill hit the buffers, after an IT contractor firm refused to hand over access to its software.”
