Taking our lubricant oils and petrochemical products to new and diverse markets

BP opened its Taiwan office in 1989 to begin marketing lubricant oils for the consumer market and to engage in marketing other petrochemical products. Currently our downstream business markets lubricant oils not only to the consumers, but also to industrial, marine and airline customers.

The China American Petrochemical Company (CAPCO) is a joint venture with BP formed to manufacture purified terephthalic acid (PTA).

CAPCO has six production plants with a total capacity of 2.1 million tonnes a year. The five units at the Kaoshiung site have about 1.4 million tonnes total capacity, while the Taichung site produces 0.7 million tonnes using our Project X technology.

We’re always on the lookout for talented professionals to join our collaborative team, deliver our business and develop a long-term career in keeping with their ambitions – all while ensuring safety and excellence are at the forefront of everything we do.

Our Taiwan office is in Taipei. As well as being the capital of Taiwan and serving as the island's financial, cultural and governmental centre, Taipei is famed for its many museums, parks and temples.
