New Orleans, LA (AP) - BP is reiterating claims first made last April that it is entitled to payment from contractor Halliburton Energy Services for expenses and lost profits resulting from the 2010 Deepwater Horizon offshore oil well disaster.

BP's latest filing was made Monday in federal court in New Orleans, where complex litigation involving various companies involved in the disaster is playing out.

BP has accused Halliburton of botching the cement job on the well. Halliburton says BP is trying to saddle Halliburton with far more than its share of the legal burden.

In Monday's filing, BP says Halliburton has made inaccurate statements about BP's legal claims. And BP emphasizes it is seeking damages from Halliburton, including costs and expenses for oil cleanup and remediation, lost profits and other costs.

    BP is entitled to pay for ALL clean up; AND ALL applicable fines AND their people in charge of the site at the time of the spill need to go to prison.

      I agree my friend. Plus, priority should go to cleaning up the marshes and sea beds along with impact studies and related responses. 2nd preference would go to the businesses that were affected. Those that cry for BP would rather have tax payers pay for cleanups. Did their mommas get someone else to clean up their spills when they were little?
