Halliburton Has a Controversial History

Over the past century, Halliburton has been at the center of some significant controversies and disasters. This includes the April 2010 explosion and sinking of the Deepwater Horizon, which is recognized as the worst offshore disaster in U.S. history. It also includes allegations of corruption, wherein the Nigerian government filed charges in December of 2010 against former Vice President Dick Cheney, who was chairman and CEO of the company from 1995-2000.Hor Halliburton has also been implicated in several environmental violations, such as a toxic cloud emitted from its Farmington, New Mexico facility that forced evacuations of nearby residences.

Halliburton & the Deepwater Horizon Explosion

Halliburton was the drilling contractor on the Deepwater Horizon offshore oil rig that exploded on April 20, 2010, off the coast of Louisiana. At approximately 7:45 pm, high-pressure methane gas from the well expanded into the marine riser and rose into the drilling rig, where it ignited and exploded, engulfing the platform. According to investigation reports, the cause was related to defective cement on the rig, which allowed the flammable gases to escape and ignite below the surface. 11 people were never found after a 3-day search operation. 17 were severely injured. The Deepwater Horizon sank on the morning of April 22.

Halliburton was fined $200,000 dollars by the Department of Justice for destroying evidence related to the incident and settled $1.1 billion dollars in claims.
