09:11 EDTBPBP chairman says Deepwater settlement resolves largest remaining legal exposures
BP chairman Carl-Henric Svanberg said: "Five years ago we committed to restore the Gulf economy and environment and we have worked ever since to deliver on that promise. We have made significant progress, and with this agreement we provide a path to closure for BP and the Gulf. It resolves the company's largest remaining legal exposures, provides clarity on costs and creates certainty of payment for all parties involved. In deciding to follow this path, the Board has balanced the risks, timing and consequences associated with many years of litigation against its wish for the company to be able to set a clear course for the future. The Board therefore believes that this agreement is in the best long-term interest of BP and its shareholders. The Board set out its position on the dividend at the first quarter and this remains unchanged by the agreement."

In an interview with the Financial Times, Shell (RDS.A, RDS.B) CEO Ben van Beurden said Opec's decision not to cut production has sent a "powerful signal... to shale oil companies as well as their financiers that they cannot forget the price risk. The industry will remember it for some time." The CEO noted that industry efforts to boost efficiency and cut costs should keep production going for "a while to come... until the sweet spots start running out."
