Halliburton Reaches Modest Settlement in Gulf Oil Spill

Halliburton has settled at $1.1 billion in damages to citizens, local governments and businesses that were affected by the 2010 Deepwater Horizon spill.

In a statement later on Tuesday, Halliburton said, “An agreement denies liability; it is not an admission of liability.”

Also in a Halliburton statement:

“Halliburton denies all allegations of any wrongdoing, fault, noncompliance, liability; denies that it acted improperly in any way; and denies that it caused any damage or loss arising out of, due to, resulting from, or relating in any way to, directly or indirectly, the Deepwater Horizon incident.”
