BP wasn't the only one to blame for the 2010 oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, a senior company executive said, during court testimony.
BP's humbled CEO sat grim-faced Thursday as a House chairman accused him of being oblivious to the risks of the company's deep water operations. Tony Hayward later told Congress he was "deeply sorry" for his company's catastrophic oil disaster in the Gulf of Mexico.
Members of Congress chastised the largest oil companies Tuesday, accusing them of being no better prepared than BP to avert an environmental catastrophe.
"I think that's a shared responsibility to manage the safety and the risk," Mr. McKay said, in response to who was responsible for the leak, according to the BBC. "Sometimes contractors manage that risk. Sometimes we do. Most of the time, it's a team effort."
Halliburton was the company that provided the cement to seal the well, he said.
