BP returns some staff to Algeria after deadly attack

  • BP says some staff has returned to Algeria but more security arrangements must be completed before it sends expatriates back to In Amenas, the gas plant attacked by Islamic militants last year that resulted in the deaths of 40 workers.
  • Statoil (STO), which operates In Amenas with BP and state-owned Sonatrach, said last week it had also returned staff to In Salah and Hassi Messaoud but not to the scene of the attack.
  • In Amenas produced ~11.5% of Algeria's natural gas output before the attack and full resumption would free up more of the fuel for export to Europe.
