Production & operations

The operational heart of bp, producing the affordable hydrocarbon energy and products the world needs – safely, cleanly and efficiently

In production & operations (P&O) we find and develop hydrocarbon resources, operate oil and gas production assets, as well as refineries, pipelines and terminals around the world.


Our vision is to become an industry-leading hydrocarbons business and the engine room of our integrated energy company.

We will do this by always putting safety first, reducing carbon emissions, improving efficiency, integrating across the value chain, and flexibly deploying talent to the solve the biggest issues.

“With continued rigour in safety and our operations, driving emissions down, and transforming our focused oil, gas and refining operations to drive efficiency, we will play a leading role in bp’s transition from an international oil company to an integrated energy company.”
