Halliburton to Plead Guilty in Oil Spill Case

Posted: Updated:

LOUISIANA_ Halliburton Energy Services has agreed to plead guilty to destroying evidence in connection with the 2010 Gulf of Mexico oil spill.

The criminal charge was filed in federal court in Louisiana. Officials say Halliburton has agreed to pay the maximum fine, be on probation for three years and cooperate with the government's criminal investigation.

A press release did not say exactly how much the fine would be, but Halliburton did make a voluntary $55M contribution to the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation.
