Bp also known as British Petroleum “is one of the world's leading international oil and gas companies, providing its customers with fuel for transportation, energy for heat and light, retail services and petrochemicals products for everyday items.” This establishment has over 80 operations under its umbrella ranging from the United States to Australia.
Oil companies such as BP constantly try to find the next best way to dig and find oil underneath the surface of the earth. Not only do they have well educated persons there to help measure, dig, etc., but they also have a great number of technological resources. The resources that are used include: 3D film that Geologists look at in a room ...view middle of the document...

Aerial photography from aircraft and satellites can be revealing. The same tectonic shifts that formed mountains and other topographical features above the earth’s surface also shaped the rock formations down below. To the trained eye, these photographs can say a lot about what lies beneath the soil. Aircraft can measure the gravitational pull over an area. Even small gravitational differences can reveal large clues about the density of underlying rocks.”
Before actually sending the drilling crew, all experts have to be consulted and once that has taken place the work begins. Access road are built to have everyone on the project find a place to travel to and fro from the site to their suppliers so that the normal roads are not inconvenienced by all the traffic that could be caused by the workman.
BP began their journey as early as 1901 when George Reynolds decided that natural gas was going to be a hit. After William D’arcy heard this news, he decided to invest some cash in the finding with great hope that this would be a moneymaker. The journey wasn’t exactly the easiest thing to find as it took eight years to strike gold. Time was wasted and money was spent but neither William nor George gave up hope. To their surprise after eight long years of drilling, there was oil making both men very rich.

During that time, there were people that began to get sick that lived near the drilling site, and a Doctor by the name of Dr. Young was sent to medicate and heal those in need. In 1914, almost yet another bankruptcy took place. This would have been the second time and the reasons this time would be because of cars being so expensive and therefore having no one to sell it to (BP).
As the years progressed, what was known as the “Anglo-Persian project” began to grow. Between the 1920’s and 30’s cars began to set foot on the streets more than even and BP became BP. There were as little pumps as 69 and within 5 years, the pumps grew to have 6000 pumps (BP). After some time, BP had its hands in many pots. They helped with the war as many other oil companies joining in to become the “pool”. The Pool Gasoline consisted of many oil companies including Shell and a host of other as World War II began and having made Gasoline a rationed commodity (BP).
BP lost a lot by helping with the war, but did not let their loss stop them. In the 1960’s BP decided to drill in Alaska and to their surprise, there was oil and lots of it. According to BP’s site, “BP got back to the search and in 1969 tapped into its share of the largest oil reservoirs ever found on the North American continent”. From 1971-1999 Bps Accomplishments went from bad to good as most of its history lies. They had to ship over 140 Million tons from the Middle East because of some disagreements and BP took a huge hit. Gratefully, they had other refineries to help bounce back in Alaska. BP became...
