Bupa International has launched a new website for the oil and gas industry to complement its International Oil and Gas scheme.

The site also features general industry news aimed at anyone in the sector and information for customers on the latest health care issues affecting oil and gas.

The launch follows BUPA's announcement earlier this year that it was pumping £8.5m into information technology.

BUPA International's general manager, Bill Ward, welcomed the launch, saying: “The new site will substantially enhance the quality of service we provide to our customers within the oil and gas industry.”
