BP Plc.

BP is one of the largest Global Integrated Oil & Gas companies, generating over $240 bn in 2017 sales, with operations across 70 countries. By revenue, it is the third largest of the six Integrated "Supermajors". BP is well geographically diversified both in terms of 1P reserves and production, which reached 18.4 bboe and 3.6 mboe/d respectively in 2017 (incl. BP's 19.75% share in Rosneft). Historically the Upstream segment has been the main contributor to the company's operating earnings. The division is involved in the Exploration and Production of both Oil and Gas (with a bias towards oil) across Conventional and Unconventional plays (onshore, tight oil & gas, offshore shallow and deep-water). Strategically, BP is focussed on "advantaged" O&G projects, characterised by large scale, short cycles and low development costs. The Downstream segment (i.e. Refining and Marketing) has historically been the second largest contributor to BP's Adj. EBIT and the company owns 1,892 kb/d of refining capacity (39% in the US, 46% Europe and 15% RoW). Downstream is divided into three business segments: (1) Fuel Value Chains, (2) Lubricants and (3) Petrochemicals. (04 Oct 2018)
