|BP accused Halliburton Co of destroying evidence that the oilfield services company did inadequate cement work on the Gulf of Mexico oil well that blew out last year, and asked a federal judge to punish Halliburton. BP said Halliburton 'intentionally' destroyed the results of slurry testing for the well, in part to 'eliminate any risk that this evidence would be used against it at trial.' BP said Halliburton appeared to have lost computer evidence showing how the cement performed, with Halliburton maintaining that the information is simply 'gone.'|
