    Cement contractor Halliburton is objecting to a proposed US$7.8 billion settlement between British Petroleum (BP) and a plaintiffs group representing more than 100,000 victims of the 2010 oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.

    Halliburton said in a filing in federal court in New Orleans late Tuesday the settlement improperly seeks to assign certain claims that BP has made against Halliburton to the Plaintiffs Steering Committee.

    The Houston-based company says allowing the settlement to be approved under those conditions would affect its ability to independently settle with the PSC or individual plaintiffs.

    Halliburton also asserts it can’t be made to contribute to payments BP makes to the plaintiffs without a legal obligation to do so.

    Preliminary approval of the momentous settlement is expected to be considered by a federal judge on Wednesday.

  7. Energy chief demands probe into slumping oil output

    Monday 15 October 2012

    Azerbaijan’s most senior energy official has called for further scrutiny of the international consortium which is developing the Caspian Sea nation’s main oil field amid mounting irritation at a slump in output.

    Industry and Energy Minister Natiq Aliyev said today that the drop-off in production over recent years at the Azeri-Chirag-Guneshli project had been “highly abnormal.”

    President Ilham Aliyev warned last week that errors by AIOC, the oil field development consortium led by BP, had cost the country £4.9bn in lost revenue so far.

    BP Azerbaijan claims that it is working with state oil company Socar to address production issues.

    The foreign ministry insisted that criticism should not be interpreted as a signal of worsening conditions for international investors in the oil industry.

    BP controls a 35.8 per cent stake in the struggling project while Socar has 11.6 per cent and Chevron 11.3 per cent.
