NEW ORLEANS — A former BP executive will be allowed to travel to the United Kingdom later this month while he awaits trial on charges relating to an investigation of the 2010 Gulf oil spill.

A federal judge on Wednesday granted a request allowing David Rainey to travel to the UK from Aug. 28 through Sept. 7.

Rainey is now an executive with BHP Billiton Petroleum. He is being allowed to travel for business and family reasons.

Rainey is slated for trial the week of March 9. He has pleaded not guilty to charges that he obstructed a congressional investigation and made false statements.
