BP is a British-based multinational oil company which is the third largest energy company and the fourth largest company in the world, and is one of the world’s leading international oil and gas companies. Through our work we provide customers with fuel for transportation, energy for heat and light, lubricants to keep engines moving, and the petrochemicals products used to make everyday items as diverse as paints, clothes and packaging.
After the April 20, 2010 explosion of the Deepwater Horizon and subsequent oil spill disaster in the Gulf of Mexico, BP’s public standing and stock value dropped substantially, losing nearly half of its market capitalization. Since then, BP’s stock has been slowly but steadily increasing as it continues to place a huge emphasis on sustainable and environmentally friendly practices.
BP has a large international presence, with branches in Europe, the Americas, the Asia Pacific region, and Africa/the Middle East.
