BP CEO Dudley Says Not Interested in Buying Coryton Refinery

February 07, 2012

Feb. 7 (Bloomberg) -- BP Plc isn’t interested in buying Petroplus Holdings AG’s Coryton refinery, Chief Executive Officer Bob Dudley said today.

BP provided Coryton with a cargo last week, Dudley said.

Petroplus, which filed for insolvency last month, has been running the 220,000 barrel-a-day Coryton plant at less than half capacity after lenders froze credit lines at the end of 2011.
