BP p.l.c. operates as an integrated oil and gas company. The company owns 19.75% of the voting shares of OJSC Oil Company Rosneft (Rosneft), a Russian oil and gas company. Segments As of December 31 2014, the company had three segments: Upstream, Downstream and Rosneft. Upstream segment The Upstream segment is responsible for activities in oil and natural gas exploration, field development and production, and midstream transportation, storage and processing. The company also markets and trades natural gas, including liquefied natural gas, power and natural gas liquids. In 2014, the company’s activities took place in 28 countries. The company explores for oil and natural gas under a range of licensing, joint arrangement and other contractual agreements. The company gained access to new potential resources covering approximately 47,000 square kilometers in five countries: Australia, Greenland, the U.K. (North Sea), the U.S. (Gulf of Mexico) and Morocco. In December 2014, the company signed a production-sharing agreement (PSA) with the State Oil Company of the Republic of Azerbaijan to jointly explore for and develop potential prospects in the shallow water area around the Absheron Peninsula in the Azerbaijan sector of the Caspian Sea. The company’s oil and natural gas production assets are located onshore and offshore and include wells, gathering centres, in-field flow lines, processing facilities, storage facilities, offshore platforms, export systems (e.g. transit lines), pipelines and LNG plant facilities. It includes production from conventional and unconventional (coalbed methane, shale) assets. The principal areas of production are Angola, Argentina, Australia, Azerbaijan, Egypt, Trinidad, the UAE, the U.K. and the U.S. Gas marketing and trading activities: The company markets and trades natural gas (including liquefied natural gas (LNG)), power and natural gas liquids (NGLs). This provides the company with routes into liquid markets for the gas the company produces. The integrated supply and trading function manages its trading activities in natural gas, power and NGLs. Gas and power marketing and trading activity is undertaken primarily in the U.S., Canada and Europe to market both BP production and third-party natural gas, support group LNG activities, and to manage market price risk and create incremental trading opportunities through the use of commodity derivative contracts. Strategy: The company’s strategy includes the following: a continued focus on safety and the systematic management of risk; prioritizing value over volume; disciplined investment in three distinctive engines for growth; delivery of competitive operating cash growth through improvements in efficiency and reliability – for both operations and investment; and strong relationships built on mutual advantage, deep knowledge of the basins in which the company operates and technology. Downstream The Downstream segment has significant operations in Europe, North America and Asia, and also manufactures and markets products in Australasia, Africa and Central and South America. Downstream is the product and service-led arm of the company, made up of the following three businesses: Fuels – This business includes refineries, fuels marketing and convenience retail businesses, together with oil supply and trading activities that make up fuels value chains (FVCs). The company sells refined petroleum products including gasoline, diesel and aviation fuel. Lubricants – This business manufactures and markets lubricants and related products and services. Petrochemicals – This business manufactures products at locations worldwide, mainly using proprietary BP technology. These products are then used by others to make essential consumer products, such as paint, plastic bottles and textiles.
