BP Claims Halliburton Destroyed Oil-Spill Evidence
Advertisements [?]
Source: WSJ (Google title for full article)

BP PLC is alleging that Halliburton Co. destroyed evidence in the weeks following the Deepwater Horizon explosion in 2010 that demonstrated that the cement formula the firm used on the drilling operation was flawed.

The claim, made Monday in a federal civil-court filing in New Orleans, is the latest in a continuing volley of accusations between the companies as they face potentially huge civil and criminal penalties stemming from the 2010 accident in the Gulf of Mexico that killed a total of 11 people and led to the largest offshore oil spill in the U.S. history.

Halliburton has previously said that it believes the cement mix it recommended that BP use on the well was stable. It has argued that the well failed because of poor engineering and design choices made by BP.

BP argued in its filing that Halliburton conducted tests following the April 20, 2010, accident that determined that the same cement formula used on the Deepwater Horizon well did have problems.
