How did Halliburton’s flawed cement cause the BP oil spill?



  1. 0 Votes

    Tests showed that the cement Halliburton used before the BP oil spill was unstable. The cement was meant to secure the casing and separate the hydrocarbon zone from the oil. However, the commission examining the spill says the cement must have failed to do this. The nitrogen foam cement Halliburton pumped into the well was unsuccessful at blocking hydrocarbons from entering and this caused an explosion.
