In Australia our business is about finding, producing and marketing the natural energy resources on which the modern world depends.

Find out for yourself what it takes to deliver energy safely to the world. Discover how BP and its people find, develop and produce essential sources of energy. And see with your own eyes how that energy is turned into products you and everyone on the planet depend on every day.

Heat. Light. Power. Mobility. Materials to make the products that define the life you live. All are made possible by oil and gas. And as demand continues to grow, delivering it sustainably and at a reasonable cost remains one of the biggest challenges in the world today.

Join us and you’ll find how our people make some truly amazing discoveries to meet that challenge. Both in terms of scientific and engineering breakthroughs and what we as a team are capable of.
