    Welcome to the BP US Pipelines & Logistics Operator Qualification (OQ) page for contractors. Here you will find everything you need to know about our OQ Program. BP has been involved and is committed to the ASME B31Q Standard. Through 2008, BP will be adjusting our program to align with this standard. BP uses ISNetworld to track covered tasks performed by contractors on our Jobsites.

    At BP we are dedicated to developing and applying innovation through education and empowerment. Everything we do relies on people; no oil rig, pipeline or terminal produces ideas or drives results.
