Hurricane Michael Update  

BP has begun redeploying offshore personnel to company-operated facilities in the deepwater Gulf of Mexico after determining conditions were safe to return. In conjunction with our midstream partners, BP’s four operated platforms now have teams offshore to begin restarting production procedures in a safe and efficient manner. There will be no further updates at this time.
