Oil services contractor Halliburton Inc. said in a
statement Friday that workers had finished cementing
the well's pipes 20 hours before the rig went up in flames.
Halliburton is named as a defendant in most of the more
than two dozen lawsuits filed by Gulf Coast people and
businesses claiming the oil spill could ruin them financially.

Coast Guard: Oil drilling rig overturns en route to La. scrap yard; no leaks detected
MORGAN CITY, La. (AP) — Officials say an oil drilling rig on its way to a scrap yard has overturned in Louisiana.
No injuries have been reported.
The rig overturned about 80 miles west-southwest of New Orleans. The Coast Guard said in a news release Friday that the drilling unit overturned in the Charenton navigational canal.
It can carry about 20,000 gallons of diesel fuel, but Coast Guard officials did not know how much fuel was on board. Coast Guard investigators say no fuel leaks have been found.
Good! No leaks!
Tina Moore, the owner of T. Moore Services, which owned the rig, says it was being transported to a demolition and scrap yard. She says the rig was mounted on a barge.
