BP’s roots date back to the early 1900’s when oil was discovered in the Middle East. Starting as Anglo-Persian Oil Company in 1908, the company was renamed Anglo-Iranian Oil Company in 1935, and British Petroleum in 1954. In 1978, British Petroleum purchased majority stake in Standard Oil of Ohio. In December of 1998, British Petroleum and Amoco merged to form BP Amoco plc. BP Amoco plc then merged with Burmah Castrol and ARCO, and in 2001 the company became BP plc.
