BP has been a leading operator in Scotland since the mid-1960s when North Sea oil and gas exploration and production began. In 1970, they discovered the giant Forties field, confirming the North Sea Region as a globally significant oil and gas province.
Their activity set in the North Sea spans the entire industry life-cycle, from access and exploration, through resource appraise, drilling, commissioning, production and decommissioning. To date, they have invested around £40 billion in the North Sea and produced over five billion barrels of oil and gas. More Information
