BP leader ousts head of drilling

Los Angeles Times - - Business -

BP’s in­com­ing chief ex­ec­u­tive, Robert Dud­ley, ousted Andy Inglis, head of drilling at the time of the Gulf of Mex­ico oil spill, and set up a safety unit to over­see the com­pany’s op­er­a­tions in a bid to re­store its rep­u­ta­tion.

In his first act be­fore tak­ing over as CEO this week, U.S.-born Dud­ley said he was split­ting BP’s ex­plo­ration and pro­duc­tion di­vi­sion in three. Mark Bly, who wrote an in­ter­nal re­port into the causes of the spill re­leased this month, will head the safety di­vi­sion.
