Company Overview

Oil giant BP moved into the top bracket of oil companies in the late nineties with the acquisitions of US concerns Amoco and Atlantic Richfield. More geared to oil production and exploration than its main rivals, BP has moved into the former Soviet Union to secure future production as its current key assets in the North Sea and Alaska wind down.
