Interior Secretary disputes Transocean's safety claim
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Interior Secretary Ken Salazar on Monday disputed Transocean Ltd's claim that 2010 was the best safety year for the company, and that this justified safety bonuses for Transocean executives.
Salazar told reporters on a telephone conference call that Transocean was "at some fault" for causing millions of barrels of crude oil to leak from BP's Macondo underwater oil well in the Gulf of Mexico last summer.
