Our business is the exploration, production, refining, marketing, trading and distribution of energy, and we do it on a phenomenal scale. We own or part-own 17 refineries around the world, operate tens of thousands of miles of pipelines and run a fleet of more than 80 ships. We produce about 4 million barrels of oil equivalent per day and own world-leading brands, such as BP, Amoco, Aral and Castrol serving millions of customers each day. And in recent years, we’ve made profits of over $20 billion a year.
We aim to meet a growing global demand for energy without compromising the planet. So we’re going further to discover new reserves, produce cleaner fuels and develop new energies, and we’re investing in the technology and the people to do it. Every year we commit more than $1 billion to technology that is shaping the future of the industry; and every year we hire 750 graduates and interns globally to become the managers and technical experts of the future. We recruit into three key disciplines – Engineering, Science or Business. Within each of these, there is a wide range of opportunities - from chemical engineering to geoscience, chemistry to finance, trading to drilling and completions engineering. Whether you’re based in Exploration & Production, Refining & Marketing, or within our corporate team, you will find the same support and encouragement to achieve new professional heights – and beyond. There are many benefits to joining BP.
