BP unveiled a reorganization of its oil and gas production operations on Friday, reversing a change it enacted after the Gulf of Mexico oil spill.

The latest move is intended to free Chief Executive Bob Dudley from close oversight of day-to-day operations so he can help chart BP's recovery from the disaster which killed 11 men and spilled 5 million barrels of crude into the sea.

BP's shares failed to recover since the Macondo well was capped, and Dudley has been criticized for failing to communicate a strategy for growth.

Lamar McKay, currently head of BP's U.S. operations, becomes head of a new exploration/production (E&P) unit it called Upstream.

BP planned to announce his appointment internally next week but brought forward the announcement a Reuters revealed the plan. . .

Several local BP stations have already abandoned BP for others.

BP's name will also change in an effort to distance themselves from Deepwater Horizen
