Drilling Process Attracts Scrutiny in Rig Explosion - WSJ.com
The scrutiny on cementing will focus attention on Halliburton Co., the oilfield-services firm that was handling the cementing process on the rig, which burned and sank last week. The disaster, which killed 11, has left a gusher of oil streaming into the Gulf from a mile under the surface.
Federal officials declined to comment on their investigation, and Halliburton didn't respond to questions from The Wall Street Journal.
When the WSJ, a house organ of the Republican Party, can't get an answer from Halliburton, you know something really bad is happening.
