FACTBOX-Halliburton, Transocean also lined Senate coffers

 WASHINGTON, May 11 (Reuters) - Executives from Transocean
Ltd RIGN.S and Halliburton Co HAL.N joined BP Plc BP.L
officials on Tuesday for a day of grilling before two U.S.
Senate panels to explain how the Deep Horizon rig exploded and
sank in the Gulf of Mexico, setting off a giant oil leak.
 Like BP, both Transocean, which owned the rig, and
Halliburton, a contractor, also pumped money into the campaign
war chests of senators who sit on the Energy and Natural
Resources Committee and the Environment and Public Works
Committee.
 Halliburton has given a total of $3.2 million to federal
candidates since 1990. Transocean and its pre-merger corporate
predecessors -- Sonat Offshore and Sedco Forex -- have
contributed $69,457.
 Following is a list of campaign contributions to committee
members by the two companies' political action committees and
associated individuals.
 All figures were compiled from campaign disclosure records
by the nonpartisan Center for Responsive Politics.
