He did promise, however, that BP will work until the spill is completely cleaned up.
"We will not rest until we make this right," Hayward said. "We're a strong company and no resources will be spared. We and the entire industry will learn from this terrible event."
Lawmakers, such as Rep. Henry Waxman (D-Calif.), House Energy and Commerce Committee chairman, say BP cut corners and acted irresponsibly by putting cost ahead of safety. Other members of Congress say they're appalled no one from BP has been fired over the spill.
