BP (BP +0.8%) is reviewing plans to start exploratory drilling for oil and gas in Libya later this year following the terrorist attack on a gas plant in neighboring Algeria, but it has not yet moved to scrub the drilling program at the Ghadames block near the borders with Tunisia and Algeria. Meanwhile, Islamist militants are suspected in a second pipeline attack, this time in northern Algeria.
