British Petroleum in history

Founded by William Knox D’Archy in 1910 as the Anglo-Persian Oil Company, BP has come to be one of the largest companies in general worldwide. When oil was first discovered in Iran in 1908, both British and Persian stakeholders got involved. The Anglo-Persian Oil Company gradually became the British Petroleum Company. Perhaps most notably, BP is known for their Deepwater Horizon oil spill in 2009 on the Gulf of Mexico. This oil spill was one of the largest oil spills in petroleum history.
