BP point man doesn't say if they'll drill again
BP's new point man for the oil spill won'tsay if the giant company will resume deepwater drilling in the Gulfof Mexico after a judge lifted a White House moratorium.
Bob Dudley, managing director of BP PLC, was asked on NBC's"Today" show Wednesday if BP would start drilling again.
Dudley says they will "step back" from the issue while theyinvestigate the April 20 rig explosion that killed 11 workers andtriggered the worst offshore oil spill in U.S. history.
BP is the largest oil and gas producer in the Gulf.
Dudley told the CBS "Early Show" he has completed taking overthe disaster response and cleanup from the company's chiefexecutive, Tony Hayward. Hayward repeatedly sparked criticism fromthe Gulf to the U.S. Capitol for missteps and insensitive comments.
