Across the globe, we’re finding new ways to take oil and gas out of the ground
An oil rig hundreds of miles out in the North Sea, a pipeline from Azerbaijan through Georgia to Turkey, an LNG facility with a production capacity of millions of tonnes a year in Indonesia. What do all these places and assets have in common? The need for safe, reliable operations. With active exploration and production interests in over 25 countries and plans for continued growth, our teams in Operations are the backbone of our business – and they’re in the spotlight like never before. BP operates more of its own production than any other major energy company. We need people with operations’ experience who can grow with us, support our progress and help us set the tone for the rest of the industry.
Join us in Operations, and you’ll be part of an expert team that freely shares knowledge and experience. You’ll also have structured training and development to help you reach your personal and professional goals. BP operates centres of excellence that reflect the breadth of our expertise and give you opportunities to gain leading-edge skills. We value technical excellence and enable our experts to progress whether they want to move into management or progress in their disciplines. All of this combined with our exploration heritage ensures that new, varied and challenging opportunities are always on offer.
Engineering Services (ES) delivers small projects and brownfield modifications, turnaround (TAR) planning and delivery, inspection and integrity management programmes. ES also provides discipline engineering support in field operations. Our teams interface with planning as well as reliability and maintenance teams to deliver improved facility efficiency by minimising unplanned production losses and driving continuous improvement. Roles in ES include discipline engineers, projects engineers, TAR leaders and specialists and inspection execution managers.
Logistics involves the movement of material, supplies and personnel to and from our operating locations and, in some cases, the related infrastructure. Depending on the location, the logistics team could comprise specialists in Marine, Aviation (both helicopter and fixed wing), and Trucking. The team often oversees the base for these activities. In some locations, Logistics is also responsible for managing camp facilities. With a workforce extending from operational managers to drivers, there’s a range of roles available in marine operations, aviation, dispatching, camps management, utilities management, fleet management, and roads/well pads supervision.
Join us in Operations Engineering and you’ll provide services that support on-going production activity. Working closely with Operations leadership teams, you’ll help promote safe and compliant day-to-day operations. From monitoring operating envelopes to assisting in developing operating instructions and leading compliance audits, you’ll make a difference to BP’s progress. You could also get involved in the technical input for control of work, the development and implementation of operations start-up/shutdown and normal operation strategies, or assist multi-disciplinary engineering teams in developing operational flexibility for changing process conditions. Roles in Operations Engineering include Offshore and Onshore Operations Engineers, discipline engineers supporting operations, and Team Leaders.
Operations is the biggest employee community at BP. Leaders in Operations are focused on assuring our safe and compliant day-to-day operations.

Leadership roles include: Operations Team leaders, Offshore Installation Managers, and Operations Managers and Area Operations Managers.
Planning is a key component of running an effective and efficient operation. The planning team ensures activities from all functions (e.g., Drilling, Projects, and Subsurface) are fully integrated and deliverable within the constraints of any specific operation. Key activities include maintenance planning, preventive maintenance planning, well services planning, and projects planning to ensure new projects are integrated seamlessly into ongoing site operations. Roles include Planning Managers, Planning Team Leaders, Schedulers, and Planning Systems and Tools Coordinators.
Reliability and Maintenance

Our Reliability Engineers identify and manage asset reliability risks that could adversely affect plant or business operations. Maintenance roles include engineers and team leaders. To ensure reliable delivery of daily maintenance activity, you could get involved in developing and improving work methods, developing maintenance procedures with technical documentation and developing maintenance spare programmes for critical equipment. Your goals would include loss elimination, risk management, and life-cycle management associated with total cost of ownership principles.
We have opportunities for experienced operations professionals at our facilities around the world, including Alaska, Angola, Australia, Azerbaijan, Canada, Gulf of Mexico, Indonesia, North Africa, North Sea, Middle East, Russia, Trinidad, United Kingdom, United States and at our Technology Centres in Houston and London.
