Let the Gulf Oil Spill Wars Begin - BP Sues Halliburton 42 Billion

So much for BP paying to clean up all the oil after the 200 some day spill in the Gulf of Mexico.


Jan 2 (Reuters) - BP has called on contractor Halliburton to pay all costs and expenses it incurred to clean up the 2010 Gulf of Mexico oil spill, which the oil major previously put at around $42 billion.

Halliburton cemented the failed well that caused the United State's biggest offshore oil spill.

In a U.S. court filing, BP said it was suing to recover costs and expenses from cleaning up the oil spill, lost profits, and "all other costs and damages incurred by BP related to the Deepwater Horizon incident and resulting oil spill".

It did not specify an amount and it was not clear how the latest suit differed from a previous one brought last year. A BP spokesman declined to put a figure on the costs sought in the latest filing, but said the "documents speak for themselves".

In April 2011, BP asked a court to award it damages "equal to, or in the alternative proportional to Halliburton's fault," to cover clean up costs and government fines BP might faces.

The company previously said it expected the costs of sealing the blown out well, cleaning up the damage, compensating those affected and government fines to reach $42 billion.

LOL. You don't type too well, do you?

Or, you can't think too well.

Combination of both?

It's all a well crafted Obama Democratic plan to cripple the Cheney\Bush Halliburton funding for Republicans. Dirty deeds.
