The British oil giant’s revenue declined by 9.5% to $359 billion last year, as price volatility proved to be a drag on the energy industry. BP’s profits also plummeted to $3.8 billion after doubling to $23.4 billion the previous year. BP chair Carl-Henric Svanberg reflected on 2015 by saying his company started the year confidently only to end it “with significant uncertainties.” At least one uncertainty became more clear recently with the nearly $19 billion settlement of claims arising from the 2010 Gulf of Mexico oil spill. Though the black eye BP suffered as a result of that accident isn’t going away anytime soon.
