BP provide In Amenas situation update

Monday, Jan 21, 2013

BP today gave a further update on the situation at the In Amenas joint venture in Algeria and its response following the terrorist attack on the site early on Wednesday morning (16 January, 2013).

At the time of the attack there were 18 BP employees at In Amenas, 14 of them are safe and secure. Two of the 14 have sustained injuries, but these are not life-threatening.

BP remains gravely concerned about four of its employees who are missing. There is no further confirmed information regarding their status at this time. BP group chief executive Bob Dudley and other executives have spoken to the families to offer the company’s full support at this deeply tragic time.

To respect the privacy of these individuals and their families, we cannot comment on their identities.

BP can confirm that overnight it has completed its plans to bring out non-essential staff from In Salah, Hassi Messaoud and other locations.

More than 35 BP staff from various locations in Algeria have now been flown out of the country as a precautionary measure. BP’s HR teams and others are working to provide them with medical services, practical help and other assistance as needed.

BP will keep the security situation under close review across the region in the coming days.

BP’s response teams in Algeria and the UK are still in full operation.
