BP is on trial to fix responsibility for the blowout of the rig which resulted in 11 deaths and a massive spill in the Gulf of Mexico.
Randy Ezell said his colleague Jason Anderson had been a "top-notch" toolpusher who would have done everything in his power to prevent the blowout. But Anderson and others on the rig apparently misinterpreted the results of a crucial safety test, he said.
Anderson was one of 11 workers who died on the rig. Ezell said Anderson told him less than an hour before the explosion that there were no signs of trouble.
