BP results, oil prices, China and unconventional gas

In this week’s podcast: BP – its fourth quarter results and Bob Dudley’s long-awaited strategy update as chief executive, and a court ruling that potentially scuppers BP’s proposed alliance with Russia’s Rosneft; surging oil prices – $100 a barrel. We ask what significance the unrest in Egypt has had on pushing prices up and we look at the impact closure of the Suez Canal could have on the industry; China and the country’s seemingly vast appetite for unconventional gas which is impacting on global M&A figures.

Presented by Sylvia Pfeifer with David Blair, Vincent Boland, Leslie Hook and Robert Wright.
