BP, BHP Evacuate Crews From Trinidad Rigs; Ivan Nears (Update2)

Sept. 7 (Bloomberg) -- BP Plc, Europe's largest oil company, said it evacuated 500 non-essential workers from offshore rigs near Trinidad and Tobago as Hurricane Ivan approached the Caribbean country.

BHP Billiton, Australia's biggest oil and gas company, and BG Group Plc, the U.K.'s third-largest natural gas producer, also recalled workers. Atlantic LNG Co., the country's sole liquefied natural gas plant, suspended exports for safety reasons.

"We're hoping that Ivan doesn't turn out to be terrible," BHP Billiton spokesman Patrick Cassidy said in a telephone interview from Houston. Trinidad and Tobago issued a hurricane alert as the storm approached.
