Drilling Company Pleads Guilty to Falsifying Test Results Prior to Deepwater Horizon

Helmerich & Payne International Drilling Company (H&P), an Oklahoma-based oilrig contractor, has pleaded guilty “to covering up problems with one of its critical blowout preventers by falsifying the results of pressure tests on the device in 2009 and 2010,”writes David Hammer of WWL-TV in New Orleans.

“H&P falsified one of the tests just a month after the employees of another drilling contractor, Transocean, misinterpreted the results of similar pressure tests on their own blowout preventer, leading to the deadly Deepwater Horizon explosion and BP oil disaster.”

Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement (BSEE) director Brian Salerno commented, "The safety of offshore workers and the environment is dependent on the integrity of the safety and control equipment. Companies need to be on notice that falsification of test results will not be tolerated."
