About us

Through our partnership with Reliance Industries Ltd, we have a 30% share in oil and gas exploration blocks on the east coast of India.


We also have an equal share in India Gas Solutions Limited, a joint venture to source and market gas in India. We are a recognized leader in the development of technology for the petrochemicals industry.


That’s why we’ve licensed our proprietary technology to two Indian companies and are committed to developing innovations that will help India’s petrochemicals sector to develop and compete globally. With a vibrant oil market in India, our trading teams trade crude oil, bulk chemicals and petroleum products with Indian counterparties.

Castrol India

Through our Castrol brand, we have been associated with India since 1909 and Castrol India Ltd is a leader in the Indian lubricant industry. Castrol products and services are aimed at the automotive, marine and industrial sectors and are available at more than 1 lakh retail outlets.

Global teams based in India

As well as running safe and reliable local operations, we have teams based in India that manage a number of activities for our global business. By transferring technology, knowledge and expertise, we’ve been able to outsource our global information technology, finance and procurement functions to India. We also administer jobs for bp Maritime Services (BPMS). Employing more than 1,000 staff around the world, bpMS operates all bp ships, from crude oil and product tankers to liquefied natural gas (LNG) and liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) carriers.


The variety of bp operations in India means we can offer a diverse range of career opportunities for talented and dedicated people in a number of different areas. We value individual differences, and whatever your background and expertise, we can help you thrive in a culture of mutual respect and co-operation.
