US reviewing BP request for drilling permit-source

WASHINGTON, April 4 (Reuters) – BP Plc (BP.L: Quote, Profile, Research) has submitted
one permit application to the U.S. government to drill one well
since the Obama administration lifted its temporary ban on
deepwater drilling, according to a source familiar with the
matter.

“That permit is in review,” said the source, who spoke on
the condition of anonymity because it is predecisional.
