BP announces discovery of new North Sea oil fields just weeks after Scottish Independence vote

With Scotland having turned down independence, and the No campaign scathing about SNP claims that an independent Scotland could exploit North Sea oil reserves, BP has announced the discovery of a new oil field in the North Sea. This comes just four weeks after the vote, in which BP chairman Bob Dudley said BP were against Scottish independence, saying Scottish oil would run out by 2050. Pro-independence campaigners may well be asking why BP didn’t announce this before the referendum.
