A government investigation of the deadly Deepwater Horizion oil rig explosion in the Gulf of Mexico is set to resume next week.

Five more days of hearings are set for July 19 through July 23.

A panel of officials heard six days of testimony in May from rig workers, company executives, government regulators and others.

The April 20 rig blast killed 11 workers and left millions of gallons of oil spewing into the Gulf of Mexico.
