BP to strengthen risk management in the group

September 30/2010

LONDON (ICIS) -- BP will create a new division to strengthen safety and risk management across the group, following the Deepwater Horizon oil spill disaster in the Gulf of Mexico, the energy major said on Wednesday.

The Safety & Operational Risk function, brought in by the incoming chief executive Bob Dudley, would have sweeping powers to oversee and audit BP's global operations and intervene in all aspects of its technical activities, it added.

The new organisation was one of a number of changes announced by Dudley as he prepared to take over his new role on 1 October.

Tony Hayward stepped down as CEO following BP's investigation into the Macondo well incident in April which led to the explosion and fire that killed 11 people and caused widespread pollution.
