BP: Deepwater Horizon Accident Involved Multiple Parties

BP: Deepwater Horizon Accident Involved Multiple Parties

British oil giant BP has issued a statement with regard to  yesterday’s settlement reached between Transocean and the U.S. Department of Justice related to the Deepwater Horizon accident which occurred in April, 2010, when the Deepwater Horizon rig exploded off Louisiana, killing eleven workers on board.

The statement, issued yesterday, is as follows:

“Today’s settlement between Transocean and the United States underscores what every official investigation has found: that the Deepwater Horizon accident resulted from multiple causes, involving multiple parties. 

In settling, Transocean has acknowledged that it played a significant role and has responsibility for the accident. Transocean is finally starting, more than two-and-a-half years after the accident, to do its part for the Gulf Coast. 

Unfortunately, Halliburton continues to deny its significant role in the accident, including its failure to adequately cement and monitor the well.”
