                        BP BOARD APPOINTS NEW COMPANY SECRETARY

The board of BP p.l.c announced today that David Jackson has been appointed company secretary and head of the chairman's office with effect from July 24, 2003. He succeeds Judith Hanratty who has reached normal retirement age after 28 years with BP and nine years in her current role.

Before joining BP in 2002 Mr Jackson, who is a solicitor, was company secretary and general counsel at Powergen plc for 13 years. He played a key role in the legal affairs of Powergen, starting with its privatisation and culminating in its acquisition by E.ON AG. in early 2002.

Paying tribute to Judith Hanratty, BP chairman Peter Sutherland said: "As company secretary and head of the chairman's office since 1994, Judith has created an exceptional legacy for the future.

"She has been instrumental in creating the model for corporate governance in BP which is recognised as being of the highest quality. As a member of the Bar with a wide range of business experience in the UK and abroad, Judith has developed, within the BP model, the role of the company secretary's office in providing specialist counsel and support to the board and the chairman.

"Her attributes of integrity and outstanding professionalism have been greatly valued by the board as a whole."
