British Petroleum is one of the leading organizations in the energy sector. The company operates in more than 100 countries and caters to almost 13 million consumers in a single day.

Aral, Castrol and Arco are the established brands of the company.

BP is regarded as the fourth largest company in the whole world. The explosion in the Deepwater Horizon was responsible for the death of 11 people. The accident took place in April 2010 and has harmed the company's image to a great extent. This has resulted in a huge drop in the stock value of British petroleum. BP lost half of the market share and the image of the organization was also tarnished. The oil spills have caused damage to the fishing industry and the environment too.

In the year 2001, BP was renamed as BP Plc and the tag line said "Beyond Petroleum". This was a result of the merger between BP and Amco. Almost all the stations of Amco in the USA were converted as a part of BP's corporate identity. Currently, BP is one of the world's largest energy supplying organization, supplying its consumers with fuel for daily transportation, energy for heat and light, retail services and petrochemicals products for everyday necessities (BP at a Glance, 2010).
