Major projects 2018

So far in 2018 BP has started up six upstream major projects in Europe and Eurasia, North Africa and North America, following on from seven successful start-ups in 2017. Together with the projects already brought on line in 2016 and 2017, these new projects will make a huge contribution to the 900,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day (mboed) of new production, net to BP by 2021.
