Lessons from the Deepwater Horizon Disaster

US oil rig workers fear for future (2:29)

Oil-rig workers in the Gulf of Mexico are concerned about their livelihoods one year after the Deepwater Horizon rig exploded causing the United States's worst-ever off-shore oil spill.

The disaster has badly affected America's deep water drilling industry, with much of its equipment lying idle amid discussions on more stringent safety and environmental standards.
