A judge has ruled two Liverpool men, who died during a terrorist siege at a gas plant in Algeria, were unlawfully killed.
Garry Barlow and Paul Morgan, were killed during a terrorist attack on a gas plant while working for BP.
In a statement the company said:
The completion of the inquest is important for the families of our colleagues who were so tragically lost in this unprecedented act of terrorism. We have supported the inquest process from the start and believe it to be the most effective means of achieving a thorough investigation to assist everyone to understand what happened in those dreadful few days.
We are very grateful to the Assistant Coroner who presided with such care and concern for the victims and their families during very traumatic testimony, and would also like to acknowledge the witnesses who have demonstrated such strength throughout this process. BP will now closely review the findings.
Since the attack, BP and Statoil jointly carried out an extensive review of security arrangements in Algeria and have been working with the Algerian state energy company Sonatrach on a programme of security enhancements. The focus of BP and our partners in the In Amenas joint venture is to do all we can to prevent any such incident from happening again.
