Text size Aa Aa

As BP announced it had so far spent 2.5 billion euros on the Gulf of Mexico oil spill it was reported that the company was seeking a strategic investor to insulate it from takeover attempts.

UK newspapers said efforts were underway to get rival oil groups and sovereign wealth funds interested in a stake of up to 10 percent.

Middle East newspapers said financial institutions there were considering that.
