Mr Hayward, who is to step down as chief executive next month, will be joined by Mark Bly, BP's group head of safety and operations.

The hearing before the House of Commons Energy and Climate Change Committee is to take place next Wednesday.

Issues to be covered include the risks of deepwater drilling off the UK.
