BP has a significant presence in hundreds of communities across California through gas stations and convenience stores.
Its footprint includes 275 ARCO-licensed and -branded stations, along with the franchise for about 700 ampm convenience stores across the state.
In addition, BP’s marketing and trading business has provided energy products and services to California since 1984. The company markets enough natural gas in the state to meet the energy needs of 6.9 million households, or five times the number of homes in Los Angeles.
BP also supplies biogas to three California transit agencies and more than 70 compressed natural gas and liquefied natural gas fueling stations. Biogas can be produced from raw materials, such as residential, industrial and commercial waste found in landfills. BP has contracted with more than 10 different landfills to sell supply in the state.
BP also seeks to develop new energy technologies in California. BP Ventures has invested more than $100 million in companies based in the state, partnering to bring clean technologies and other leading-edge energy solutions to market.
