Transocean president and CEO Steven Newman testified Tuesday on the 14th day of a trial designed to determine the causes of BP's well blowout and to assign fault to the companies involved.
Newman said Transocean agreed to plead guilty to a misdemeanor charge of violating the Clean Water Act because its employees on the Deepwater Horizon played a role in botching a crucial safety test before the blowout of BP's Macondo well.
But Newman said BP ultimately was responsible for determining whether the test was successful.
