For over 150 years, BP has supplied the energy fueling America’s growth. Today, our U.S. operations provide the investment, jobs and products underpinning both American prosperity and its transition to a lower-carbon future. 

In 2017, our businesses supported more than 125,000 U.S. jobs and contributed $85 billion to the U.S. economy. BP invests more in the United States than we do in any other country – $100+ billion between 2005 and 2017 – making us one of America’s top producers and refiners of oil and gas. With more than a dozen wind farms across eight states, BP is also one of the largest operators of renewable energy among our peers. And in 2017, a net wind portfolio the size of BP’s helped avoid around 2.3 million metric tons of carbon dioxide emissions.
