“BP on Monday accused oilfield-services giant Halliburton of destroying unfavorable results from tests on cement used to plug the leaking well in the Deepwater Horizon disaster.
Halliburton prepared the cement mix that BP had used to plug the deep-water well that blew out in April 2010, killing 11 and unleashing a huge oil spill. In a motion filed with a U.S. court in Louisiana, BP said that Halliburton’s own tests after the incident showed the cement slurry was unstable and claimed the company destroyed the results of the test and misplaced key data.
Halliburton destroyed the evidence “in part because it wanted to eliminate any risk that this evidence could be used against it at trial,” BP said in the filing”
