North Sea's Hound Point VLCC jetty reopens on schedule-BP

LONDON, June 8 (Reuters) - Hound Point's Jetty 1 in the North Sea has reopened on schedule following planned maintenance, a spokeswoman for operator BP said on Monday.

"Both jetties are now operational," she said.

Hound Point's Jetty 1 is the North Sea's key loading berth for very large crude carriers (VLCCs). It has been closed since early May, preventing Forties crude from departing for Asia.
