BP in Mexico

BP is committed to contributing to Mexico's long-term growth prospects

What we do

BP has invested in Mexico for more than 50 years, beginning with the marketing and distribution of Castrol lubricants in the 1960s. Since then, our presence has grown with the opportunities offered in this dynamic and growing market. Today, in addition to holding a market leader position in lubricants, BP also trades natural gas, LNG, NGLs and crude oil, as well as refined products including petrochemicals. Together, these activities help to support the energy requirements and energy security of Mexico.

We have collaborated for many decades on the latest technologies and technology transfer into Mexico, and the establishment of local suppliers.

Our people

To support our activities, we hire and train talented young Mexicans whose personal energy and creativity contribute to success in the country. Our people are passionate about their professional development and share a vision to be one of the world's most forward-thinking energy companies - to participate in sustainable development and energy security, while creating opportunities for all Mexicans. We have about 70 employees in Mexico, most of whom are Mexican nationals recruited in Mexico. Our main office is located in Mexico City.

Community investment

BP Mexico is committed to working with the communities where we operate to help improve the quality of life of their inhabitants and create new opportunities. In recent years, we have focused especially on educational programmes that offer young Mexicans the opportunity to advance personally, become leaders, and contribute to greater progress and new opportunities for Mexico. At the post-graduate level, we provide scholarships to Mexican students through the UK government’s prestigious Chevening programme for one-year master’s degrees at UK universities. For secondary school students, we provide life-changing two-year scholarships to study at one of several United World Colleges, at locations worldwide.

BP also funds scholarships for English-language teacher-training courses in Mexico through the Anglo-Mexican Foundation, resulting in a 'multiplier effect' of many hundreds of students acquiring better English language skills by qualified teachers. In 2012, BP established the BP-Anáhuac endowed chair in strategic studies with Mexico City’s Anáhuac University to examine and disseminate some of the key challenges faced by the global energy industry, as well as the industry’s contribution to greater economic growth, development and energy security. BP has also supported the bi-national charitable organization Amistad Británico-Mexicana, which provides educational equipment and materials to primary, secondary and technical schools throughout Mexico.
