Halliburton awarded $200 million contract

Halliburton announced that the United States Department of Justice (DOJ) has closed its investigation of the company's role related to the Macondo well incident.

The federal judge in New Orleans, Louisiana, accepted the single misdemeanor guilty plea for the unauthorized deletion of a computer record that was created after the Macondo well incident. A fine of $200,000 and three years' probation was imposed by the court. The matter was resolved pursuant to a previously announced cooperation plea agreement between a Halliburton subsidiary and the DOJ.

In connection with the resolution, the DOJ's investigating Task Force characterized the company's cooperation in the case as 'exceptional,' as well as 'forthright, extensive and ongoing since the outset of the investigation.'
