This has been covered in a few ways here on ATS but if you've watched any network news it seems they are not even mentioned! THIS is the conspiracy aspect of this and so deserves its own thread so we at ATS can get into the why's and how's.

Who is connected to Halliburton, what agenda connections do they have, why could it be that BP is taking the full brunt of the oil spill press when it seems VERY plausable that Halliburton caused this intentionally.

Here's an ATS thread by BeastMaster2012: Halliburton & the Oil Spill. It deserves recognition as showing some of Halliburton's shady past.

There are dozens of stories on the internet about Halliburton's involvement but if you listen to the MSM sources I have (even NPR!) you won't hear the company mentioned.

Halliburton May Be Culprit in Oil Rig Explosion

Who's to Blame? BP, Halliburton, Feds all implicated


"Halliburton, yet again, a bunch of murdering thieves"




WHY!!? How can we hold our media accountable in this very easy opportunity to show the general public the media agenda!?

Well thank you for pointing out my thread!

Here is a Summary of Halliburton's role in all of this:

Halliburton acquires "Boots and Coots", the premier international oilfield emergency expert. From firefighting to pollution control, Boots & Coots is there to provide complete emergency services as well as preventative maintenance, engineering and design, safety training, and are the most experienced team of well control specialists in history.

They acquired them 8 days before the explosion happened, which cost them $240 million dollars. There were problems with the take over though, shareholders are suing over this. Halliburton has worked with Boots & Coots for a very long time, and Boots & Coots was involved heavily in both the Iraq and Kuwait war.

Wall Street is backing Halliburton on this one and it seems like something strange is happening with the stock of Boots & Coots.

Yes i know we do not know the cause of the "accident" but Halliburton was working on the site and cementing a tube that runs to that connects the rig to the bottom of the Sea. 11 people died and thank GOD halliburton's 4 people got off alive! PHEW!

There is no news of Boots and Coots working on putting out the fire or controlling the spill, that is what i am trying to find out. If this doesn't make for one shady conspiracy theory, i don't know what else will.

Also do you guys know that Halliburton made a crap load of money off of Hurricane Katrina?


WASHINGTON, Oct. 12 (HalliburtonWatch.org) -- The U.S. Navy awarded $33 million to Halliburton for clean up work at naval air stations damaged by Hurricane Katrina, the Department of Defense announced last night.

The money will be added to the $12 million awarded to Halliburton on August 29, the day Katrina made landfall. Both awards, totalling $45 million, require the company to repair structures and remove debris at naval air stations in Pascagoula and Gulfport, Mississippi and in Louisiana.


How did they get paid the day of land fall? That is pretty amazing. Anyways, MOVE ALONG, NOTHING TO SEE HERE!

For the time being, here is a video that i think fits this situation very nicely!

... new energy sources, carbon capture, geothermal

Could they have any reason to make oil look bad? oh no... of course not.

For those not already familiar with Halliburton's involvment - they were working on the cement at the base of the rig, 5,000 feet down at the ocean floor only 20 hours before the whole thing blew up. A standard "fail-safe" that would normally stop this type of accident didn't work as it should have.

Nice one BeastMaster! Gotta love Leslie Nielsen!

Here's some "info" from the Halliburton website: (you can skip it, basically says "Nothing to see here! Please disperse!")


HOUSTON - Halliburton (NYSE: HAL) confirmed today its continued support of, and cooperation with, the ongoing investigations into the Deepwater Horizon drilling rig incident in the Gulf of Mexico earlier this month. Halliburton extends its heartfelt sympathy to the families, friends and our industry colleagues of the 11 people lost and those injured in the tragedy.

As one of several service providers on the rig, Halliburton can confirm the following:

Halliburton performed a variety of services on the rig, including cementing, and had four employees stationed on the rig at the time of the accident. Halliburton's employees returned to shore safely, due, in part, to the brave rescue efforts by the U.S. Coast Guard and other organizations.
Halliburton had completed the cementing of the final production casing string in accordance with the well design approximately 20 hours prior to the incident. The cement slurry design was consistent with that utilized in other similar applications.
In accordance with accepted industry practice approved by our customers, tests demonstrating the integrity of the production casing string were completed.
At the time of the incident, well operations had not yet reached the point requiring the placement of the final cement plug which would enable the planned temporary abandonment of the well, consistent with normal oilfield practice.
We are assisting with planning and engineering support for a wide range of options designed to secure the well, including a potential relief well.
Halliburton continues to assist in efforts to identify the factors that may have lead up to the disaster, but it is premature and irresponsible to speculate on any specific causal issues.

i am not a stock expert, but maybe someone can tell me the significance of this:

Shares of Boots & Coots (AMEX:WEL) are trading up 1% to $2.96 today on above average volume. Approximately 1.4 million shares have traded hands today vs. average 30-day volume of 598,000 shares.


Another interesting thing that i am sure has nothing to do with the Halliburton /boots and coots take over is the COOTS in BOOTS and COOTS just passed away a few days before Halliburton made a bid for Booters and cooters (my lovely nickname for them).

www.rigzone.com...

With Coots out of the way did that leave the door open for Halliburton to finally step in and try to acquire boots and coots? Who knows, and i admit this could all be a non-important factor but i just want to throw this out there.

From CNN.com Greed, negligence behind BP oil spill:

"First, we must hold BP accountable and responsible."

"The BP oil spill threatens New Orleans and the entire Gulf Coast in a way that's more insidious than Hurricane Katrina"

"The BP disaster has only one cause: human greed"

"Since BP can't contain the spill -- rather, the river, which is what it really is"

** No mention of Halliburton anywhere in the article. **

We'd need to see at least the last six months or so of stock volume and price. Interesting about the founder dying.

Here's some about Halliburton stock: In Spite of Oil Spill, Wall Street Still Likes Halliburton:


Wall Street has been quick to defend Halliburton, at least based on the limited information available so far. The stock traded up 74 cents, or 2.4%, to $31.39 on Monday as analysts expressed confidence that the company was not to blame.

They have done it before off the coast of Australia
in 2009 and again in the gulf in 2010.
Coincidence? Don't think so.


Halliburton may also be implicated[49] in the oil spills in the Timor
Sea off Australia in August of 2009 and in the gulf of Mexico in April of
2010 for improper cementing. An investigation is underway as to the
cause of the Australia spill.


en.wikipedia.org...


The Times article reported that Halliburton employees had
been performing “concrete operations” just before the accident
occurred, and the company had been involved with that activity
before the Australian incident, too.

A Halliburton employee, David A. Doeg, testified to the Australian
commission that he made the problem worse at the Montara
well by repumping concrete during an incorrectly handled procedure
before the blowout.


Such an operation may have been intended to temporarily seal the
well, perhaps prior to installing permanent pipe or moving the drill to
another location,


www.md-writer.com...

And more instances of leaks and spills, 2002 and 2006


In 2002 a Toxics Release Inventory (TRI) reports were done
to see if chemicals being emitted were harmful to people from
Halliburton's Harris County, Texas facility. The facility had 230
TRI air releases in 2001 and 245 in 2002.[47]

On June 7, 2006 Halliburton's Farmington, New Mexico facility
created a toxic cloud that forced people to evacuate from their
homes.[48]


en.wikipedia.org...

Maybe they need to change their name to
the Leaky Halliburton.

Major accidents in 2002, 2006, 2009 and 2010.

However, the oil disaster in Australia. The oil company
owning the oil rig was PTT Exploration out of Thailand.
The accident happened in August 2009.



2 months after this spill supposedly caused by Haliburton's
cement procedures, the Thailand's stock market
went into a selling frenzy. Some PTTEP stocks were sold
at bottom prices to Oman Oil which caused their stock
prices to actually rise (make a profit) less than 2 months
after an oil spill.

www.reuters.com...


Oman Oil Company, OOC (www.oman-oil.com) is fully owned
by the Government of the Sultanate of Oman. The company was
created in 1992 to give the Government a vehicle for pursuing
investment opportunities in the energy sector both inside and
outside Oman. The company is currently involved in a number
of projects in countries such as UAE, Korea, Thailand, Kazakhstan
and Spain.


www.ameinfo.com...

Had this accident by Haliburton NOT occurred, the stock prices
would not have tanked allowing the purchase of PTTEP Stock.

Conflict of interest here, Haliburton worked on the PTTEP rig
that had the spill in Australia and at the exact same time
won an oil contract from Oman Oil, the same company who
purchased the down stock of PTTEP when it tanked.

www.arabianoilandgas.com...

Now fast forward to 2010.
the same exact accident with an oil spill in gulf
happened once again with BP's stock blowing
out the bottom on Wall Street. See who buys up
BP Stock in the near future and you will find out
who paid Haliburton to cause this accident.

And I bet it leads you to Saudi Oil
or one of it's subsidiaries !!!

This was an intentional act, not an accident.

Of course they like Haliburton.

Haliburton cleans up all the illegal activities
that nobody else wants to do.

The illegal grunts of corporate fraud and espionage.
And they are well paid for their services.

The problem is, now they got caught and their
bubble is bursting and if Haliburton goes down,
many on Wall Street go down with them.

just to clarify for saint, he was discussing the situation with RK on another Halliburton thread and saint is just pasting his information he has collected to this post. He also just commented on my thread to with the same thing. Hope this helps. BTW no one cares about this for some reason.. really, there is nothing to see here apparently............

no, he said it on another thread about Haliburton
and I posted my excerpt here cuz it was related
to your thread. It was relevant in my opinion
and I didn't feel like re-typing it all here.
So I copied and pasted it.

Ya it's bizarre not many people on this.

I've been searching Main Stream Media [MSM] sources for the last hour... only mention of Halliburton is off-MSM sites. Associated Press's only mention of Halliburton is that link posted above that the stock market still likes 'em


They know Halliburton is implicable in this so they DON'T post the Halliburton involvement, only that ~IF~ you see something on Halliburton be prepared that the stock market still likes 'em - crazy.

Halliburton has a history with oil spills and is being protected by the media - people need to see this.

I had no idea that Halliburton had been involved in previous oil spills other than possibly the Persian Gulf somehow - Wow!

First and foremost I have enjoyed this thread and it is a good read.

Now that being said, maybe I can lay some light to your frustration in regards to MSMs not seeing what you see.

By the very nature of this site, your mind will view things slightly different. Some call it paranoid while others call it critically thinking. There is a fine line that anyone who posts here walks.

Could it be that your angle about the incident hasn't been picked up because it is all speculation. Sure you have connected some dots, but there is no 'smoking gun' or even direct implication in the matter at hand. Only what appear to be coincidences in events leading up to the matter.

Could it also be skewed due to the highly tainted view upon Halliburton and their misgivings and nefarious previous acts have led you to a path that may actually not be there?

For a reporter (not MSMs, but a true reporter) they will want facts. The who, the what, the why, the when and how. So we have Halliburton buying out a company and then working on the rig where the accident occurred. While it raises some flags, it isn't that uncommon for a larger company to swallow up a smaller company in efforts to expand their services. The true reporter can gather what you have presented, but will not run with it unless the dots are undeniably connected and the facts support the findings.

While your connections you have presented are compelling, they do not however prove anything except your suspicions. This doesn't mean they isn't something here, just that its very flimsy in terms of solid reporting.

I commend your efforts and research nonetheless, just thought I would give a perspective on maybe why you are not seeing this being explored.

Now, to add to the conspiracy, maybe that is the conspiracy...hush money, backroom deals, turn a blind eye, etc....

I appreciate your calling me on this and pointing out that we need to see facts - I agree.

In slight defense my thread is about how the MSM is not covering Halliburton who, in fact, are the owners of the rig. BP is leasing the rig, and a different company all together is running it, so it makes sense that Halliburton should at least be mentioned and BP shouldn't be the coined agent of cause here.

SOooo ironic that STILL, days later, I've only heard mention of Halliburton once and that was from a specialist on an NPR interview.

Crazy - I'm really surprised that hasn't gain more interest on ATS - Halliburton's website even mentions they're involved, yet the media refuses.

I've heard Halliburton mentioned once on the BBC news, but not in a way that would implicate them. This was a day or two ago. My ears perked up because I was wondering why they were suddenly mentioning Halliburton, but nothing else was said.
