Halliburton pleads guilty to destroying Gulf oil spill evidence
The plea agreement requires court approval, and also requires the Houston-based company to be subject to three years of probation and to continue its cooperation with the government's ongoing criminal probe.
Halliburton also made a voluntary $55 million payment to the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation that is not subject to court approval of the plea agreement, the Justice Department said.
A spokeswoman for Halliburton did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
