GoM incident well was cemented to procedure, service company says

Offshore staff

HOUSTON -- Halliburton, one of the service companies that worked on Deepwater Horizon, said it had not placed the final cement plug at the time of the incident which would enable the planned temporary abandonment of the well. Well operations had not yet reached that point, the company says.

Halliburton says it had completed the cementing of the final production casing string “in accordance with the well design approximately 20 hours prior to the incident.”

The company is assisting with planning and engineering support to secure the well, including a potential relief well.
