BP confirmed in London Tuesday the identity of the fourth of its employees who were killed in the terrorist attack on the In Amenas gas plant in southeastern Algeria in mid-January.
Stephen Green, who was from Fleet, England, was an HSSE specialist, who had more than 23 years of experience working on major international projects.
The announcement means that BP has now confirmed the identities of all four of its employees who were unaccounted for after the attack. Sebastian John, Carlos Estrada and Gordon Rowan were also among the 40 people at In Amenas who were killed.
"These men were murdered while carrying out their jobs on a normal working day. It was a calculated and evil act," BP Group Chief Executive Bob Dudley said in a company statement.
"As BP mourns the loss of our colleagues, our thoughts are also with the families and friends of all of those who lost their lives in this terrible incident."
At the end of January Statoil, BP's partner in the In Amenas joint venture, confirmed that the last of its missing employees – Victor Sneberg – had been found dead. Statoil lost five of its staff in the attack.
