BP shuts UK field after oil leak
"The oil giant launched a review of all its pipelines at the Wytch Farm site following the incident - less than a year since its Gulf of Mexico oil leak put the company's health and safety record under scrutiny.
"Wytch Farm has not been producing its 25,000 barrels per day since November and the pipeline where the leak was discovered has been undergoing maintenance ever since. Robots have been sent down into all its pipes at the site to check their condition.
"BP did not release any public statements at the time of the leak but on Wednesday told The Telegraph that the move to shut down the field was due to "extreme caution" because of the US spill."
