BP and Chevron, this Tuesday, announced plans to invest heavily in geothermal energy through a new innovative start up
The deep freeze in Texas could be about to send gas prices soaring.
Oil major BP is launching its first share award scheme to rally its more than 60,000 employees around CEO Bernard Looney's plan to shift to renewable energy following a bruising year of mass layoffs, bonus suspensions and spending cuts. Looney, who took office a year ago, held a company-wide town hall meeting last Tuesday where he announced that all employees would receive shares, the first such programme in BP's history, according to a company spokesman. "Whether you are a barista in New Zealand, a drilling engineer in Azerbaijan, a pump clerk in South Africa or an analyst in India – over 60,000 people in 66 different countries will receive a share in BP's future," Looney said in an internal message seen by Reuters that followed the town hall meeting.
