BP has reset its strategy after agreeing to a record $18.7bn fine for the Deepwater Horizon disaster in 2010. We look at the future of BP after this difficult time.

Also, we look at how a string of tax cuts aimed at boosting business will aid the UK offshore industry, ask whether the development of an offshore oil industry help Greece steer away from the brink of bankruptcy and find out more about a new centre of excellence for robotics and automation at TWI’s facilities in Cambridge.

Moreover, we look at the lawsuit over a decade-long oil leak in the Gulf of Mexico and find out more about the offshore industry in West Africa.
