BP ISSUES 2012 U.S. ECONOMIC IMPACT REPORT

     (The following press release from BP was received by e-mail. The sender 
verified the statement.) 
BP Issues First Annual US Economic Impact Report Detailing Its Commitment to 
American Economy  
2012 US Economic Impact Reached Nearly $150 Billion and More Than 260,000 Jobs 
WASHINGTON – BP’s business activities in the US helped generate more than $147 
billion in economic impact in 2012 and support more than a quarter million 
American jobs, the company’s Group Chief Executive Bob Dudley will announce 
today in a speech at the World Affairs Councils of America in Washington, DC. 
In its US Economic Impact Report 2013 released today, BP provides a detailed, 
state-by-state look at the breadth and impact of its activities in America, 
from oil and natural gas production and refining to alternative energy and 
retail gas stations. 
Last year, BP spent $25 billion with more than 15,000 vendors across the 
country on products and services ranging from offshore drilling equipment to 
wind turbines. 
That spending coupled with US investment of $55 billion of capital since 2008 – 
making BP America’s top energy investor – underpin the jobs of more than 20,000 
BP employees and over 260,000 total jobs across all 50 states, according to the 
report. 
“Year after year, state by state, supplier by supplier, employee by employee, 
gas station by gas station, we are part of the fabric of America and that is 
how we want to remain,” said Bob Dudley. “We are America’s top energy investor 
for a reason. We admire the caliber of the American workforce, the quality of 
America’s natural resources, and the dynamic future ahead of it. Our company 
strategy is built on a strong US business. We believe the prosperity of the US 
and BP are inextricably linked.”   
BP’s business investments in the US include oil and natural gas production, 
fuel refining, chemical production, lubricants, shipping, trading, renewable 
energy and cutting-edge technology research and development. The US is also 
home to a number of operations that serve BP’s global businesses, such as the 
newly opened Center for High-Performance Computing in Houston, which houses the 
world’s largest supercomputer for commercial research. 
As the second-largest producer of oil and gas in the US in 2012, BP produced 
more than 675,000 barrels of oil equivalent (boe) a day – enough nearly to 
light the entire country for one year. The company’s three northern tier 
refineries in Indiana, Ohio, and Washington are together capable of processing 
more than 725,000 barrels of oil per day. And its chemical and lubricant 
facilities supply materials necessary for modern life, including greases and 
engine oils marketed under the Castrol brand and chemicals used in polyesters, 
water bottles and LCD TVs. 
In addition to physical assets and energy production, the US is home to nearly 
40 percent of BP’s publicly traded shares and more BP employees than any other 
nation. The US is also a center for BP research and recruitment. The company 
spends more than $100 million a year on academic research, educational 
initiatives, and recruitment activities at more than 50 US universities. 
“Our people are BP’s greatest assets,” said BP America Chairman and President 
John Mingé. “Each day, their commitment to safety, pursuit of excellence and 
involvement in the community reflect BP’s core values and our commitment to 
being America’s premier energy partner.” 
At the corporate level, BP contributes more than $35 million a year to 
charitable and non-profit organizations such as the American Cancer Society and 
the National Urban League. This includes contributions through BP’s unique 
Fabric of America program in which BP employees may annually designate $300 of 
corporate funds to a non-profit organization of their choice within the United 
States. Since the fund’s 2007 inception, over $23 million has been given on 
behalf of our employees, helping to support more than 16,000 organizations in 
all 50 states. 
The investments and spending detailed in the report do not include costs 
associated with continuing cleanup and restoration activities, nor claims 
payments related to the Deepwater Horizon accident.
