Economic Consulting Team

Oxford Economics

This study analyses the economic impact of bp in the United Kingdom in 2022.

bp has been based in the United Kingdom for more than 100 years. During that period, the company has provided the country with the reliable source of energy it needs to run. As one of the UK’s largest businesses, its activities have a significant footprint that reaches all nations and regions of the country.

In this report, we explore the economic impact that bp had in the United Kingdom in 2022. That includes the jobs, gross value added, and tax revenue the company was directly responsible for at its operational sites, as well as the economic activity bp stimulated along its supply chain by buying goods and services from businesses in the UK.
