In an effort to pay for its liabilities from the US Deepwater Horizon oil spill, BP has begun to sound out potential buyers in its $10bn asset sale, according to bankers and oil executives.

On July 20, BP announced plans to raise an estimated $8.7bn from asset sales, bringing the embattled oil group close to its initial target of raising $10bn from disposals to help pay for the cost of its huge oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.

Most of the cash will come from a $7bn deal with Apache, the US independent oil and gas company, which is buying onshore gas assets in the US, Canada and Egypt.

The following interactive graphic explores which assets are likely to be sold and where.
