    BP's Chairman Svanberg to step down as Macondo pain subsides

    BP's Chairman Carl-Henric Svanberg who helped navigate the British company through the 2010 Deepwater Horizon oil spill, announced his intention to step down after nearly 8 years in the post. BP rarely replaces both its chairman and chief executive in close succession, so the decision means current CEO Bob Dudley, who also took office in 2010, is likely to remain in his position for some time yet, according to company sources. Svanberg will chair the annual general meeting to be held in May 2018 and will remain in his position until a successor is in post, the company said in a statement.

    BP eyes smaller renewable investments to avoid repeating losses

    BP (BP.L) is targeting smaller and wider-ranging investments in renewable energy to avoid large losses in the sector like those it suffered earlier in the decade, Chief Executive Bob Dudley said on Wednesday. BP and peers including Royal Dutch Shell (RDSa.L) and Total (TOTF.PA) have recognised the need to reduce carbon emissions in the fight against global warming, but their investment in renewables remains tiny compared to oil and gas. "We're making smarter, in many cases, smaller bets, and making more of them across a wider range of technologies and business models," Dudley said in a speech at the Oil & Money conference.

    Iraq wants to bring back BP after regaining control of Kirkuk oil

    BAGHDAD/LONDON (Reuters) - Iraq said on Wednesday it wanted to bring back BP (BP.L) to help develop Kirkuk oilfields, which Baghdad's military took over this week from the Kurdish Pershmerga forces, but the oil major said it was in no rush to return until security improves. Kirkuk became the key area of tensions between Baghdad and Erbil since Iraq's semi-autonomous region of Kurdistan held an independence referendum three weeks ago, triggering an angry response from Baghdad and neighbouring Turkey and Iran.

    Iraqi oil minister asks BP to develop Kirkuk oilfields, oil ministry says

    Iraqi Oil Minister Jabar al-Luaibi has asked BP (BP.L) ''to quickly make plans to develop the Kirkuk oifields,'' an oil ministry statement said on Wednesday. Iraqi government forces on Monday took control of the oil-rich region of Kirkuk from Kurdish peshmerga fighters who had occupied the area in 2-14, in the course of the war on Islamic State. BP says on its website it has provided technical assistance in the past to the Iraqi state-owned North Oil Company to aid the redevelopment of the Kirkuk field.

    Where's the money? oil traders ask as peak demand looms

    For major trading houses that ship millions of barrels of oil every day, the prospect of diminishing fuel demand and a shift to renewable power poses a brain-racking challenge with few obvious solutions. "It is a very fair question - what the hell are we going to do?" said Ian Taylor, chief executive of the world's top oil trader Vitol, which trades seven percent of the world's oil. Vitol, as well as rivals including Glencore (GLEN.L) and Gunvor, sees many growth opportunities in the bread-and-butter business of oil trading as economies in Asia, Latin America and Africa grow producing demand for oil.

    Statoil says two UK exploration wells disappoint, makes one discovery

    Statoil's exploration campaign off Britain yielded one discovery, one dry well and one non-commercial discovery this year, the company said on Monday. Results of the Mariner Segment 9 and Jock Scott wells were disappointing, while the third, a sidetrack to Statoil's Verbier well in the outer Moray Firth, proved at least 25 million barrels of oil. "Whilst the results of the other two exploration wells were disappointing, we are convinced of the remaining, high-value potential on the UK continental shelf," Jenny Morris, Statoil's vice president for UK exploration, said in a statement.
