BP is one of the world's leading integrated oil and gas companies. We provide customers with fuel for transportation, energy for heat and light, lubricants to keep engines moving, and the petrochemicals products used to make everyday items as diverse as paints, clothes and packaging
BP monitors for, and aims to guard against, hostile actions that could cause harm to our people or disrupt our operations, including physical and digital threats and vulnerabilities.
We assess risk on an ongoing basis in those operating areas that are affected by political and social unrest, terrorism, armed conflict or criminal activity. Our central security team provides guidance and support to our businesses through a network of regional security advisers. We continue to monitor threats globally and, in particular, the situation in the Middle East and North Africa.
Following the armed terrorist attack on the In Amenas gas plant in Algeria in 2013, BP and Statoil continue to work with Sonatrach, the Algerian state oil and gas company, and the Algerian authorities on a programme of further enhancements to the joint venture’s security systems and assurance of their ongoing effectiveness.
BP is a signatory to the Voluntary Principles on Security and Human Rights, which are designed to help companies maintain security while promoting respect for human rights.
