Issue two 2013

View from a helicopter over the Ramform Sterling seismic vessel. Southern promise: BP Magazine reports from the south coast of Australia


The beginning of 2013 was a difficult time for BP. On Wednesday 16 January, an armed assault on the In Amenas joint venture gas plant in Algeria led to the deaths of 40 men. Four of them were BP employees, the others colleagues from partner and contractor companies.

In this edition, we pay tribute to them while BP’s chief executive Bob Dudley shares his thoughts on how BP and its partners responded to the tragedy. He also discusses 2012’s financial results and the completion of the deal to sell its stake in TNK-BP to Rosneft.

Elsewhere, we take a look at some of the key facts and figures on the world’s energy industry from the latest edition of the BP Energy Outlook 2030 publication and bring you the first of two special reports from Australasia. This one looks at the exploration programme in the waters of the Great Australian Bight and includes an interview with the former minister for resources and energy and tourism. We also meet the BP retail teams in New Zealand who are rebuilding their livelihoods two years after a series of devastating earthquakes.
