Our Brazilian biofuels business is spread across a number of geographically remote locations, which means that every day across our sites our team makes around 800 trips, covering 45,000 kilometres.
We work in some of the hottest places on the planet including the Omani desert, where temperatures can reach 55°C. We manage heat exposure in a number of ways.
During 2016 we completed a major maintenance and upgrade exercise at our Toledo refinery in the US. This involved a full shutdown of the plant to carry out the work.
The World Health Organization estimates that fatalities from road traffic accidents in Brazil are double the rate experienced in the US.
Although our priority is to prevent oil spills and other releases, they can still happen. In October 2016, approximately 95 tonnes of oil and a quantity of water leaked from the Clair platform into the sea due to a technical issue.
Virtual reality is leading to real results as BP collaborates with Maersk Training to prepare our offshore drilling teams for challenges they face on the job.
