BP expects Iraq's oil output to stay unaffected
(06-17 18:51)

Risks of disruption to Iraq's oil output will remain limited despite the worsening crisis in the country, BP chief executive Bob Dudley said, while expressing alarm at the unrest.
''At the moment oil production isn't affected,'' Dudley said on the sidelines of an energy conference in Moscow.
''I don't believe that this kind of difficulty and instability will spread all the way to the far south of Iraq'' -- home to the majority of the country's oil operations.
''But we should all be very alarmed by what is happening,'' Dudley told reporters at the World Petroleum Congress.--AFP
