The Cullen Reports

  (Redirected from Cullen Report)

The Cullen Report can refer to one of three reports of public inquiries into disasters that were overseen by William Cullen, Baron Cullen of Whitekirk.

Piper AlphaEdit

The first Cullen Report was prompted by Occidental Petroleum's Piper Alpha disaster on 6 July 1988,[1] in which gas condensate ignited, killing 167 of the 229 people on board the oil platform in only 22 minutes.[2]


In 1996, Lord Cullen led the inquiry into the massacre at Dunblane Primary School.[3]

Ladbroke GroveEdit

The third Cullen Report was a result of Lord Cullen's appointment to chair the 1999 Ladbroke Grove Rail Inquiry.[4]
