In this week’s podcast: How BP is faring in front of the US Coast Guard and the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management in the ongoing investigations into the cause of the oil explosion in the Gulf of Mexico on April 20. We also turn our attention to Cuba’s preparation for oil exploration in the waters off the Gulf of Mexico, just 50 miles off the US – we ask what this means for the trade embargo on the Caribbean nation. We look at the Canadian potash industry and the battle over pricing, production and marketing and lastly we discuss mining media mogul Anil Agarwal and his moves to make Vedanta the natural resources champion in India.
Presented by the FT’s energy editor Sylvia Pfeifer with;
