Ex-BP boss Hayward in new foray

Former BP boss Tony Hayward is set to make a return to offshore oil drilling in 2013, the first time Hayward has returned to the waters since leaving BP after the Gulf of Mexico disaster. Hayward is planning to expand into Africa with his company, the Kurdistan-focused oil producer Genel Energy. Hayward said Genel was “beginning to spread our wings”. The firm reported a $75.9m (£50m) profit for last year, on revenues of $333.4m.
