The size of the work force cleaning up oil spilled in the Gulf of Mexico and on its shores may shrink as oil disappears, BP’s incoming CEO said Friday, but he reaffirmed the company’s long-term commitment to the region.
At a Friday news conference in Biloxi, Miss., Robert Dudley said that his company is committed “to make good to restore the Gulf Coast.”
Dudley, who will replace BP CEO Tony Hayward on Oct. 1, also announced BP has hired James Lee Witt, director of the Federal Emergency Management Agency during the Clinton administration, as a special adviser to the company in the disaster response efforts.
