We expect to invest $15 billion in BP Angola by 2010. How will we know we made the right decision?
Opportunities are everywhere. Literally. And all of them have to be balanced against risks. When it comes to a new oil well in Angola, for example, how much money should BP invest? When do the risks outweigh the potential for returns? At BP, we’re involved in some of the most technically advanced and complex energy projects in the world. And we operate those projects on platforms miles out at sea or along a pipeline crossing remote territory. When a business cycle spans several years from initial discoveries and negotiations on land rights through site planning and construction, there is a huge amount of information to evaluate and consider. Our commercial teams ensure BP continues to make sound decisions – decisions that safeguard the future of global energy supplies.
