Halliburton Could Be at Fault for Oil Spill

How did the Gulf oil rig explode? A prominent theory adds Halliburton to the mix. Workers had just finished cementing the well when the rig blew, leading experts to speculate that a flaw in this process could have caused the explosion. Halliburton, the largest company in the global cementing business, was in charge of cementing the well.

In order to prevent oil and natural leakage, rig workers pump cement down wells after they've finished drilling. This process requires a very particular type of cement, one that must be mixed and stirred in a precise fashion. If the cement is flawed, it can crack or fail to set properly, allowing oil and gas to leak through. If gas escaped through the Gulf rig's cement, it could have shot back up the well -- what's known as a "blowout" -- and ignited the fatal blast.

Halliburton was also responsible for cementing a well off the coast of Australia that blew last August, leaking oil for ten weeks before it was plugged. Though the investigation continues, an official from the U.S. Minerals Management Service testified that a poor cement job probably caused the explosion.


HMMM...... starting to smell...

Haliburton is at fault
and there are at least 4-5 Haliburton threads
going on right now on ATS.

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.

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,

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

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.

Oman Oil Company, OOC ( 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.

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.

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.

Could the catastrophic Gulf of Mexico oil rig explosion be part of a larger scheme to “reform” the energy industry, just as the Obama administration has “reformed” healthcare, banking and automobile manufacturers? Worse, is “cap and trade”—possibly the worst legislation ever penned—the ultimate endgame behind this spill, which they are now capitalizing upon?

The first red flag receiving virtually no attention is that Halliburton (of Dick Cheney fame) had finished a cementing process only 20 hours prior to Deepwater Horizon erupting in flames. Lawsuits have already been filed, with Reuters reporting on April 29, “Halliburton improperly and negligently performed its job in cementing the well, increasing the pressure at the well and contributing to the fire, explosion and resulting oil spill.”

Similar "disasters" have taken place before in the Gulf — they just weren't publicized. This incident has been seized upon to drive the current "Green Agenda" and ecological policy reforms worldwide.

I seriously doubt that Halliburton was behind the disaster. Halliburton is just one more government contractor, in the business of making money, not in the business of destroying the environment.

Deepwater Horizon survivors allege they were kept in seclusion after rig explosion, coerced into signing legal waivers

According to two surviving crew members of the Deepwater Horizon, oil workers from the rig were held in seclusion on the open water for up to two days after the April 20 explosion, while attorneys attempted to convince them to sign legal documents stating that they were unharmed by the incident. The men claim that they were forbidden from having any contact with concerned loved ones during that time, and were told they would not be able to go home until they signed the documents they were presented with.

Stephen Davis, a seven-year veteran of drilling-rig work from San Antonio, told The Guardian's Suzanne Goldenberg today that he was held on a boat for 36 to 40 hours after diving into the Gulf from the burning rig and swimming to safety. Once on a crew boat, Davis said, he and the others were denied access to satellite phones or radio to get in touch with their families, many of whom were frantic to find out whether or not they were OK.
