Oil Spill Commission Says BP Could Have Prevented April 20th Blowout

New Orleans, La. – The commission is releasing more details about pressure testing on cement work done by Halliburton, and how the results were handled. It says BP didn't consult with it own engineers about a test indicating cement problems. BP has blamed faulty cement for the April 20th well blowout. Halliburton blames BP's design. The commission's lead attorney says BP had concerns about Halliburton's cement work dating back to 2007. BP says it's now reviewing how contractors are supervised.
