BI’s Article search uses Boolean search capabilities. If you are not familiar with these principles, here are some quick tips.

To search specifically for more than one word, put the search term in quotation marks. For example, “workers compensation”. This will limit your search to that combination of words.

To search for a combination of terms, use quotations and the & symbol. For example, “hurricane” & “loss”.

BP platform Thunder Horse production delayed until 2008


BP P.L.C. announced this month that it was carrying out safety work on its Thunder Horse platform in the Gulf of Mexico. The platform, which weighs more than 50,000 tons and is designed to process more than 250,000 barrels of oil a day, is unlikely to begin production before the middle of 2008. BP said a series of tests on the platform in recent months had revealed a metallurgical failure in components of the rig's subsea system.

The platform was due to start oil production last year, but this was put back when the platform developed a serious list after it was evacuated as Hurricane Dennis approached in July 2005.
