The world is changing fast and our industry is changing with it. The energy mix is shifting towards lower carbon sources, driven by technological advances and growing environmental concerns. In BP, we will help drive this transition - and our business will be transformed by it. We are continually looking for talented, committed and ambitious people to help us shape the face of energy for the future.

Through our two main operating segments, Upstream and Downstream, we find, develop and produce essential sources of energy, turning them into products that people need. Our projects and operations help to generate employment, investment and tax revenues in countries and communities across the world.

By supplying energy, we support economic development and help to improve quality of life for millions of people. Our activities also generate jobs, investment, infrastructure and revenues for governments and local communities.


The FLP sits in our hugely diverse Downstream business. It is the product and service-led arm of BP, with a successful team dedicated to supplying, trading, refining, transporting, manufacturing and marketing new and ever-improving existing product lines. It is made up of three businesses:

  • Fuels - includes refineries, fuels marketing and convenience retail businesses, together with global oil supply and trading activities that make up our fuels value chains (FVCs). We sell refined petroleum products including gasoline, diesel and aviation fuel.
  • Lubricants - manufactures and markets lubricants and related products and services globally, adding value through brand, technology and relationships, such as collaboration with original equipment manufacturing partners.
  • Petrochemicals - manufactures, sells and distributes products, which are produced mainly using proprietary BP technology, and are then used by others to make essential consumer products such as paint, plastic bottles and textiles. We also license our technologies to third parties.

We aim to run safe and reliable operations across all our businesses, supported by leading brands and technologies, to deliver high-quality products and services that meet our customersī needs. Our strategy focuses on a quality portfolio that aims to lead the industry, as measured by net income per barrel, with improving returns and growing operating cash flow.
