HOUSTON, Feb. 3
-- Houston independent Apache Corp. said it has redeployed all nonessential expatriate personnel and all expatriate dependents from Egypt, which is consistent with the recommendation of the US Department of State based upon political unrest in Egypt.

Key expatriate personnel will remain in Egypt to work with Egyptian national personnel to manage ongoing production operations, Apache said.

The company’s production in remote locations in the Western Desert has continued uninterrupted, it said, adding that its executives in Houston have maintained open communication channels with the Apache office in Egypt.

The redeployed employees and dependents will return to Egypt when conditions warrant, Apache said.
