Anadarko may turn over drill cuttings

Bloomberg News

Anadarko Petroleum Corp. on Friday asked a judge in New Orleans for permission to turn over drill cuttings from BP’s blown-out well in the Gulf of Mexico after they were sought in a subpoena by federal investigators probing causes of the worst-ever U.S. marine oil spill.

Anadarko was a minority partner in the subsea well drilled by the Deepwater Horizon rig, which exploded and sank off the Louisiana coast in April.
