First-person Account by Engineer Called “Culpable,” Declared Innocent 6 Years Post-Tragedy National Press Club Events April 20, 2018

It is an adventure, an investigation, and a manhunt. It divulges the real reason for the Deepwater Horizon tragedy and leads the reader toward identifying the people responsible for causing it.

Deepwater Deception, by Robert Kaluza and Maryann Karinch, is being released on the eighth anniversary of the Deepwater Horizon tragedy, causing 11 rig workers to perish and doing untold damage to the Gulf of Mexico. That tragedy that occurred on April 20, 2010 was blamed on two BP well site leaders, Kaluza and Don Vidrine, who died last year.

The book will premiere at the National Press Club at two, one-hour media events the afternoon of April 20, 2018.

On November 14, 2012, Kaluza was indicted on 11 counts of Seaman’s Manslaughter, 11 counts of Involuntary Manslaughter, and a violation of the Clean Water Act. Both sets of manslaughter charges were later dropped, but Kaluza did not get his days in court to fight the final charge until February 2016. After six days of hearing evidence, the jury declared him “not guilty” in less than two hours.

That was not the end of the story, however. Kaluza set out to discover and reveal documentation of crucial statements by BP and the US Department of Justice he knew to be false—and uncovered even more dramatic evidence than his trial had addressed. Teaming up with bestselling non-fiction author, Maryann Karinch (How to Spot a Liar), Kaluza set about telling the true story—and truly dramatic—story of the Deepwater Horizon blowout.

It is the story of a rig supervisor on a five-day assignment being scapegoated by his employer, BP, as part of a corrupt cooperation-for-leniency deal the company made with the US Department of Justice. It was a deal that allowed BP to return to business as usual after the worst oil-spill disaster in US history and gave accountable executives free passes. The narrative moves from the offshore rig to the courtroom, taking the reader on the life-altering journey of Bob Kaluza, an innocent man who was swiftly acquitted, yet carries the scars of being accused of causing the deaths of eleven men and contamination of the Gulf of Mexico.

It is an adventure, an investigation, and a manhunt. It divulges the real reason for the Deepwater Horizon tragedy and leads the reader toward identifying the people responsible for causing it.
