Transocean files motion claiming that BP lied about flow rate, and the well could have been killed 2 months earlier.

Rig owner cites BP’s low flow estimates – Houston Chronicle.

As I have talked about for several years now, bad cement job does not equal blowout.  I have never believed that responsibility, and ultimate liability, fell on Halliburton.  BP is the operator of record.  It is their responsibility.  The conduct of Transocean certainly contributed, but ultimate responsibility falls to BP.
