13:28 EDTHAL, BPHalliburton manager said he warned BP before 2010 oil spill, Bloomberg says
A Halliburton (HAL) manager testified that he warned BP (BP) that it was making a mistake hours before the explosion that caused the 2010 Gulf oil spill, according to Bloomberg. Nathaniel Chaisson, Halliburtonís cementing services coordinator, said he told BP that its plan to use six stabilizers on the well, instead of the recommended 21, increased the risk of a blowout, the news service stated. Chaisson was testifying in the trial which is being held to determine liability for the oil spill. Reference Link

06:56 EDTBPSeadrill Partners receives notice of termination for West Sirius contract
Seadrill Partners (SDLP) has received a notice of termination from BP Exploration & Production (BP) for the contract for the West Sirius which will be effective after having completed the current well and demobilization, which Seadrill Partners estimates to be by early May. Prior to the cancellation notice, the dayrate and term for the West Sirius and West Capricorn contracts were swapped. The West Sirius dayrate was decreased by $40,000 per day and the term was decreased by two years to expire in July 2017 while the dayrate for the West Capricorn was increased by $40,000 per day and the term was extended by two years to expire in July 2019. Amortized payments for the West Capricorn such as mobilization and upgrades will continue on the original schedule ending in July 2017. In accordance with the cancellation provisions in the West Sirius contract, Seadrill Partners will receive payments over the remaining contract term, now expiring in July 2017. As a result of the termination, Seadrill Partners' backlog will decrease by approximately $160 million. After taking into consideration the expected decrease in operational expense while the unit is cold stacked, and the fact that termination fee payments will not be impacted by downtime, Seadrill Partners does not expect a material impact on its cash flow position over the contract period through July 2017.
