BP Understands Oil

The following statement has been issued by BP Chairman Carl-Henric Svanberg:

"I spoke clumsily this afternoon, and for that, I am very sorry. What I was trying to say -- that BP understands how deeply this affects the lives of people who live along the Gulf and depend on it for their livelihood -- will best be conveyed not by any words but by the work we do to put things right for the families and businesses who`ve been hurt.

Like President Obama, I believe we made some good progress toward that goal today."
