Equipment maker Dril-Quip says a federal judge
found it didn't contribute to the Deepwater Horizon disaster two years ago.

Dril-Quip, which makes offshore drilling equipment that was on the rig at the time of the blowout, said Tuesday that U.S. District Judge Carl Barbier dismissed all claims against the company.

The company said the judge ruled Friday that Dril-Quip's equipment didn't appear to be connected to the well blowout on April 20, 2010.

The well, which was owned by BP PLC, Anadarko Petroleum Corp. and MOEX Offshore 2007 LLC, created the worst offshore oil spill in U.S. history.
