Tsira Shakulashvili and Givi Gogoladze look over documents in which an engineering consultant denies that the cracks in his home and the neighboring homes in the village of Tadzrisi, Samtskhe-Javakheti region, Georgia were caused by vibrations from construction equipment from the two-year construction of the Baku-Tbilisi-Ceyhan (BTC) oil pipeline on July 31, 2010.  Gogoladze and his family received no compensation for their hardship because an engineering consultant hired by BP disputed the allegation that the cracks in their home resulted from the vibration of construction equipment and because the pipeline did not cross any land that is theirs despite a small mishap during construction that killed a plum tree in their yard.
