Pakistan: BP operations at Badin oil field halted by strike
02 Aug 2009
All the operations at the Badin oil field have been temporarily halted in the wake of a strike call by a local organization, a report said on Saturday. According to sources privy to BP, the work at the field is being affected owing to the strike announced by a local organization ‘Jaag Zamindar Jaag’.
The officials of the Association said the petroleum company enters into the rent agreement with an intermediary contractor instead of contacting directly with the officials; also, the employees are not taken into confidence in connection with the their employments. Therefore, the local organization demanded the British Petroleum management to enter into contract directly with the landowners, the officials added. BP is producing 10,000 barrels daily from all blocks of Badin.
