What we do

BP Group companies started operating in Brazil in 1957 when Castrol installed its factory in Rio de Janeiro. Today it operates in the country through five businesses: oil and natural gas exploration and production (BP Energy), ethanol production (BP Biofuels), lubricants (Castrol), aviation fuels (Air BP) and marine fuels (NFX). It is present in 15 Brazilian states (Amapá, Bahia, Ceará, Espírito Santo, Goiás, Maranhão, Mato Grosso, Minas Gerais, Paraná, Pernambuco, Piauí, Rio de Janeiro, Rio Grande do Norte, Santa Catarina, São Paulo) and the Federal District.

In the upstream business, BP holds a diverse portfolio, with 19 exploration and production licenses, onshore and offshore, in six different basins. 

BP also operates three ethanol refineries, one lubricants plant and is present in 20 airports.

BP’s commitment to Brazil is evidenced by growing investments, such as the eight deepwater exploration blocks awarded in Brazil Round 11 in May 2013, and the expansion of Tropical ethanol production plant, which will double its capacity.

Our People

BP Group affiliated companies have more than 6,000 collaborators in Brazil and plans to create more jobs, generate revenues for the country, train Brazilian professionals and contribute to the development of Brazilian goods and services suppliers, with the support of BP’s global experience.

Community investment

BP seeks to generate positive socioeconomic impacts in the communities of the regions where it operates. The company develops responsible operations and invests in projects that involve local people, respecting their cultural and economic traditions, and engaging with their businesses. Respect for human rights and the development of transparent, responsible relationships with stakeholders involved in its projects are fundamental BP values.
