The Feds say they’ve got a guilty plea from Halliburton in reference to its role in the BP oil disaster of 2010.

According to the Department of Justice, Halliburton hid evidence in the case by throwing out test results related to the leak. The tests focused on the cement casing in the well at the center of the disaster.

Halliburton, BP, and rig operator Transocean all have admitted some criminal wrongdoing in connection with the blowout that killed 11 rig workers and drenched the Gulf coast with oil.
