BP still wants payment from Halliburton for oil spill
Published: January 3,2012
GULF OF MEXICO — BP is reiterating claims first made last April that it is entitled to payment from contractor Halliburton Energy Services for expenses and lost profits resulting from the 2010 Deepwater Horizon offshore oil well disaster.
BP’s latest filing was made yesterday in federal court in New Orleans, where complex litigation involving various companies involved in the disaster is playing out.
BP has accused Halliburton of botching the cement job on the well. Halliburton says BP is trying to saddle Halliburton with far more than its share of the legal burden.
In yesterday’s filing, BP says Halliburton has made inaccurate statements about BP’s legal claims. And BP emphasizes it is seeking damages from Halliburton, including costs and expenses for oil cleanup and remediation, lost profits and other costs.
