BP is a leading producer of oil and gas and produces enough energy annually to light nearly the entire country for a year. Over the past 10 years, BP has invested $90 billion in the U.S. – more than any other energy company. It has the largest operated renewables business of any major oil and gas company, including more than a dozen U.S. wind farms. Our biofuels business in Brazil produces ethanol and sugar from sugar cane, and electricity from sugar cane waste. Following the expansion of our Tropical mill in 2014, our three sites produced 795 million liters of ethanol equivalent (which includes ethanol and sugar) in 2015 - an increase of 47%. BP also has a joint venture with DuPont to develop biobutanol, an advanced biofuel that, compared with others, can be blended into gasoline in greater proportions without vehicle modifications, and is easier to transport, store and manage. Employing more than 14,000 people across the country, BP supports about 130,000 additional jobs through all of its business activities.
