BP Gas Stations
BP is an international oil and gas producer and currently has its headquarters in London, United Kingdom. It holds the status as the third largest energy company in the world measured by revenues produced. BP's operations extend to all aspects of the oil and gas industry including the exploration, production, refining, distribution, marketing and trading of its oil and gas products. BP's efforts even extend to renewable sources of energy such as hydrogen, solar and wind power.
With operations in more than 80 countries BP produces around 3.8 million barrels of oil equivalent per day. They also have 22,400 service stations worldwide. The largest division of the company, BP America
has its headquarters in Houston, Texas.
British Petroleum formed a merger with Amoco (formerly Standard Oil of Indiana) in December 1998 to become BP Amoco. Two years later in 2000 BP Amoco purchased Arco (Atlantic Richfield Co.) and Burmah Castrol. In 2001, the company took on the name BP
with a tagline “Beyond Petroleum.” That name and tagline still stands today. This new changed spurred the conversion of Amoco stations across the U.S. to the BP brand even though these very stations continued to sell Amoco's branded petrol. This was a good move since Amoco had been rated as the best petrol for sixteen years in a row.
As BP made a decision to exit the Colorado market in 2005 many of its locations there were rebranded as Conoco.
