I have heard rumors that some companies have established Cement Integrity Simulators, where teams can be trained in a series of what-if situations to help prepare them not to make the same mistakes as were made on DWH.
If so, I would regard such training as a very positive safety innovation that (indeed) may be traced back to Macondo.
Does anyone have any facts to share about such simulators? Or, are the rumors of such simulators mere simulations of post-Macondo safety advances?
