Investing in America

Growing the US energy system of today and building tomorrow’s

bp has a larger economic footprint in the US than anywhere else in the world.


Nearly half of bp's global investment was spent in the US in 2023 – more than $8 billion. Every major bp global business is active here, and more than one third of our workforce – 30,000 people – is located in the US.


Find out all the ways bp is investing in America’s energy systems today and building tomorrow’s.

America: The heart of bp’s transformation

In 2020, we set out our strategy to transition from an international oil company to an integrated energy company. In February 2024, we confirmed our destination is unchanged. We’re confident in our strategy to deliver this – but we are going to do so as a simpler, more focused and higher value company – and the US is at the heart of that strategy. Since 2005, we’ve invested more than $150 billion in our US operations.
