said Wednesday that "no single factor" caused the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.

"Rather, a sequence of failures involving a number of different parties led to the explosion and fire which killed 11 people and caused widespread pollution in the Gulf of Mexico earlier this year," BP said in a statement on its Web site.

The BP report said "multiple companies and work teams" contributed to the accident.
