What next for BP?
BP will emerge from the Gulf of Mexico oil spill crisis a smaller and wiser company, according to the man who is due to take over the reins. What is the future for BP?
Bob Dudley, currently in charge of BP's clean-up operation, will replace Tony Hayward as chief executive in October. Mr Dudley described the oil spill as a terrible tragedy from which the company and the industry would learn a lot.
Earlier, BP reported a record $17bn (£11bn) loss, having set aside $32bn to cover the costs of the spill.
What does the future hold for BP? What impact will Tony Hayward's departure have on the company? What should the next chief executive do to improve BP's image?
