BP states that Halliburton ruined oil-spill evidence

Posted on December 7th, 2011 No Comments

On Monday in a federal court filing, BP PLC has made claims stating that Halliburton ruined evidence dealing with cement slurry. This filing is setting the precedent for the court case that will determine which bills each company will pay relating to the Gulf of Mexico oil spill.

Halliburton has denied that they have in any way tampered with evidence of the oil-spill. Investigations into the matter have determined that Halliburton is responsible for certain faults dealing with their own cement job at the oil rig.

The trial is scheduled to start on February 27, 2012 in New Orleans. This case will find out the liability of each company and then additional phases will figure out costs, punitive damages and several other claims.
