(Reuters) - Alabama Attorney General Luther Strange said the $500 million paid by BP Plc in compensation in the state for the 2010 Gulf of Mexico oil spill was just the "tip of the iceberg" and called for more claims, believing Alabama had not received a fair share of the $3 billion in total payouts so far.

Just over three years after the explosion aboard the Deepwater Horizon, Halliburton has finally decided to face the music and increase its reserves for payment of civil damages by $1 billion.
Things did not go well for them in the seven weeks of testimony just concluded in federal court in New Orleans. They were caught hiding samples of the exact cement mixture that failed, which they had been ordered by the court to preserve. They had to admit that the cement formulation used "had a low probability of success."

Yscloskey, Louisiana (CNN) -- On his dock along the banks of Bayou Yscloskey, Darren Stander makes the pelicans dance.
More than a dozen of the birds have landed or hopped onto the dock, where Stander takes in crabs and oysters from the fishermen who work the bayou and Lake Borgne at its mouth. The pelicans rock back and forth, beaks rising and falling, as he waves a bait fish over their heads.

NEW ORLEANS — Swiss drilling contractor Transocean knew it had a high-potential safety problem across its company months before the 2010 Gulf of Mexico oil spill because it had suffered four rig deaths in a span of just 92 days, the company’s chief executive officer testified Tuesday.
CEO Steve Newman said at a civil trial over the Gulf disaster in federal court in New Orleans that he sent a memo to staff in fall 2009 that said he was concerned about the increasing number of major incidents. He testified that Transocean needed to work quickly and decisively to fix the problem and “stop the fatalities.”

Nearly three years after the Deepwater Horizon oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, the trial is underway to determine exactly who is responsible for the disaster, and how much that responsibility will cost. The defendants are BP, Transocean, and Halliburton. Attorney Brent Coon has handled many cases stemming from the spill and is watching this trial closely. He tells KTRH that there is plenty of responsibility to go around. "BP owned the oil concession for drilling this oil, Transocean was the rig owner, and Halliburton made the cement that was to plug the well," he explains. Nevertheless, BP has been the big name attached to the disaster, and if Monday's opening arguments are any indication, the other defendants want to keep it that way. "To no surprise, most of the parties in the case, including Halliburton and Transocean, are trying to point the fingers at BP," says Coon.
