Technology is ever-present in all that we do – from safely discovering and recovering oil and gas, to alternative energy, digital and lower carbon fuels and products
Enabling production optimization with APEX

We have a rich heritage and deep technical expertise in oil and gas, encompassing seismic imaging and enhanced oil recovery in the Upstream, and advanced fuels, lubricants and petrochemicals processes in the Downstream, as well as in our alternative energy businesses.


We couple this know-how with long-term strategic collaborations with leading academic institutions, as well as with external partners.


We recognize the urgency of the climate challenge and intend to be part of the solution – improving the energy efficiency of our operations, moving our portfolio to lower carbon options, and investing in energy development.


Examples include improving our wind and sugarcane ethanol businesses and increasing the renewable content in our Downstream products.


We are growing new low carbon opportunities through internal research and corporate venturing involving bio-products, digital, advanced mobility, carbon management and power and storage.


But more fundamentally, technology supports our number one priority: safety – from corrosion management and advancements in detection and inspection, through to sensors, data analytics, advisory systems and robotics.


Put simply, technology runs throughout BP.
