NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Halliburton Energy Services and Justice Department prosecutors have urged a federal judge to approve a plea deal that calls for the Houston-based company to pay a $200,000 fine for destroying evidence after BP's 2010 oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.
Another one of the companies involved in the Oil Spill gets a break. A judge rules that Houston-based Halliburton will not have to pay many of the pollution claims that resulted from the disaster because it was shielded in a contract with BP.
BP is taking its next step to getting what they feel they're entitled to. Yesterday, BP filed a claim in federal court in New Orleans, that involved various companies involved in the 2010 Deepwater Horizon offshore oil well disaster.
Halliburton is being accused if getting rid of evidence in connection to the spill last year. BP asked for a judge to sanction Halliburton for what it sees as an unstable design fault in the concrete that they laid.
Federal regulators have cited oil company BP PLC and two other companies — Transocean Ltd. and Halliburton — for alleged safety and environmental violations stemming from last year's rig explosion and massive oil spill in the Gulf.
