In 2014, Halliburton was found negligent for its involvement in the Deep Water Horizon disaster, which began as an explosion in April 2010 resulting in the spill of approximately 4.9 million barrels of oil into the Gulf of Mexico. While Halliburton was found negligent, a federal judge was quoted as saying it was only to blame for about 3 percent of the disaster. Halliburton reached a settlement with the US District Court in New Orleans to pay $1.1 billion to resolve claims surrounding the Deepwater Horizon oil spill and its involvement.
