BP downsizes Miami spill center

August 12, 2010 12:00PM

The company has reduced its number of workers in Miami

The Brickell Bay office that once housed part of BP’s joint command
center with the coast guard is now largely vacant, after the oil that
was thought to be headed to Miami’s shores never arrived. Now BP and the
federal government consider the chance of oil hitting Miami so remote
that they are unwinding their Miami post. In June, BP rented the space,
which held 120 people; now, the company is downsizing its Miami base and
lowering the number of workers to just about 45. [Miami
