Referring to worries that its green strategy could hit profits, Looney, in an interview at the Reuters Events: Global Energy Transition conference, said: “As people understand we’re going to be in the hydrocarbons business for decades to come, that concern has gone away a little bit.”

“High oil prices are very good for our strategy and our shareholders will benefit from that, especially through our buyback programme,” he said.

Looney took office in 2020 with an ambitious plan to rapidly grow BP’s renewable energy business, while cutting oil and gas output by 40% by 2030.

But BP’s shares hit their lowest since the mid-1990s late last year, a bigger drop than any of its rivals, amid falling oil prices and investor concerns over its strategy.

“What we offer investors is a stable, resilient dividend,” Looney said. “We’re going to grow value from this company over the next five years.”

“We’re going to offer you a sustainable investment proposition that I believe will grow value,” he added.
