US company Halliburton will plead guilty to destroying evidence relating to the 2010 Gulf Of Mexico oil spill.
The plea agreement, which is subject to court approval, means Halliburton will have to pay the maximum possible fine.
The spill occurred at BP's Macondo well in the Gulf of Mexico and was the worst in US history. A blast at the Deepwater Horizon oil rig killed 11 workers.
BP had accused Halliburton, its contractor, of destroying evidence and asked it to pay for all damages.
"A Halliburton subsidiary has agreed to plead guilty to one misdemeanour violation associated with the deletion of records created after the Macondo well incident, to pay the statutory maximum fine of $200,000 and to accept a term of three years probation," the company said in a statement.
if a republican was president, you would put the blame solely on republicans, you be one transparent mother fucker.
Possibly. I'm guessing the same is true for you as to Democrats? I have "leaned to the Left" all my life, but I do lean Right on a few issues, too, whether you believe it or not. Anymore, I find I can't support either party, but yeah, I'm generally more distrustful of Republicans.
