Stopping problems before they start

We’re always looking for ways to stop potential problems in their tracks. From developing new technologies to finding new ways to see to personal commitments to safety, BP is never satisfied and always working to be better
Watch how we’re using advanced thermal imaging to inspect remote pipelines

Wireless corrosion sensors

Wireless sensor monitoring technology gives BP engineers the ability to monitor pipelines around the clock, so they can prevent a leak before it ever happens.

Stop the job

At BP, we believe it’s critical that we empower employees to stop the job, which means raising their hand or speaking up when something doesn’t seem right.

Robotic inspection technology

At BP, our engineers use robotic ultrasound technology to detect and repair issues like corrosion before they ever become a problem.

Drone technology

At BP, we’ve pioneered drone technology to monitor our refinery operations, giving our engineers the opportunity to spot potential safety issues from any angle. 

Remote operated vehicle inspection

BP engineers use underwater robots as their eyes beneath the sea surface. The remote operated vehicle (ROV) technology enables them to keep watch over safe operations from thousands of feet above.

Thermal imaging

See how BP uses new thermal imaging technology to inspect remote pipelines.

BP engineered a fleet of 32 brand-new ships with advanced technology, so we can make sure oil and gas are transported safely.
At BP’s Cooper River plant, employees take safety personally – down to each piece of equipment.
BP develops new industry-leading software to monitor drilling operations in real time, so our engineers can solve problems with the most precise data at their fingertips.
