BP in Spain

With oil and gas, we’re helping to power vehicles, homes and businesses all over Spain
Castellon Oil Refinery, Castellon, Spain The Castellón Refinery began operations in 1967

What we do

Our Spanish business is split into two main companies: BP Oil España, S.A.U, and BP Gas Europe, S.A.U, all headed by BP España, S.A.U.

Through BP Oil España, S.A.U., we refine and market oil products. Our main assets in the oil business are the Castellón refinery, which can process more than 6 million tonnes a year, and our retail network of more than 670 service stations, the third-largest in the country. We market and sell automotive gasoline and gasoil, heating fuel, aviation fuels and lubricants. We have a 9% share of the Spanish oil market.

In the natural gas business, BP Gas Europe, S.A.U. was the first international company granted access to the natural gas market in Spain when the market was first opened to competition in 1999. Since then, it has maintained an active presence in the industry, exporting gas to France and Portugal, importing LNG from multiple sources, and actively participating in the development of a fully liberalized gas market.

Our people and partners

In Spain, BP employs 900 people, mainly in Madrid and at the Castellón refinery on the Mediterranean coast.

BP in Spain owns half of Terminales Canarios, SL, an oil products storage and distribution company in the Canary Islands. The company also has a 5% share in Compañía Logística de Hidrocarburos (CLH), the main logistical network in mainland Spain and the Balearics, and the 50% of S.L.C.A, S.L (a distribution company of oil products in airports)

Community investment

Education and Safety are the highest priorities in our community and social initiatives.

Education

We run an environmental and energy education programme for school children, initiated in 1993, at La Pedriza-Cuenca Alta del Manzanares park in Madrid alongside Reforesta (an environmental education NGO) and the Madrid Regional Government.

In higher education, we fund the BP Chair on Energy and Sustainability at Comillas University in Madrid and the BP Chair on Energy Efficiency at Jaime I University in Castellón.

Elsewhere, we support the Reina Sofía School of Music for talented young students from all over the world.

Safety

We developed an awareness campaign in collaboration with Race (Royal Automobile Club Spain) focussing on the message “STOP distractions”. The campaign aims to raise awareness of the importance of avoiding distractions while driving in order to improve road safety.
