The chief executives of the world’s biggest international oil companies will testify on Tuesday that the BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico “was preventable’’, publicly distancing themselves for the first time from the UK company, the Financial Times has learnt.

Executives from ExxonMobil, Shell, Chevron and ConocoPhillips will say that by following current “best practices’’ companies can avoid such accidents, according to interviews with those who have seen the planned remarks.
