The bp is present in Portugal since 1929at a time when it was called Companhia Portuguesa dos Petróleos Atlantic.
Its presence in Portugal has been distinguished by continuous innovation and leadership in the fuel sector. Among the many innovations carried out, we highlight two that occurred in the 1980s in terms of infrastructurewhich were the creation of the the first self-service filling station and the first station with an on-site shop. In these stores, called BP Shop, 3 distinct sales poles were considered: fuel, washes and the store, which started to offer the public a wide variety of essential goods such as drinks, groceries or frozen food.
In 2003, at the turn of the millennium, bp adopted the name by which it is currently known - BP Portugal, SA, and in the following year, introduced the new generation of lighter and easier-to-handle gas cylinders in Portugal.
At the beginning of the 21st century, bp launched 2nd and 3rd generation fuels in portugal, consolidating a path won with a lot of dedication and innovative spirit.
In 2011, Invigorate was launched, a completely innovative formula that resulted from five years of research at the Global Fuel Technology Centre in Germany, making Portugal the first country in the world to market this type of fuel.
One of the hallmarks of BP Portugal has been its involvement with the communitythrough the development and participation in partnership in several projects in the area of social and corporate responsibility.
