Reliance and BP launch ‘Jio-bp’ partnership

New India fuel and mobility joint venture begins operations BP and Reliance Industries Limited (RIL) today announced the start of their new India fuel and mobility joint venture, Reliance BP Mobility Limited (RBML).

  • Following the initial agreements of 2019, the BP and RIL teams have worked closely together in recent months in a difficult environment to complete the transaction as planned.
  • BP paid RIL $ 1 billion for a 49% interest in the joint venture, with 51% RIL. Operating under the brand name “Jio-bp”, the joint venture aims to become a leading player in the fuel and mobility markets in India.
  • It will benefit from Reliance’s presence in 21 states and its millions of consumers via the Jio digital platform. BP will bring its vast global experience in high quality differentiated fuels, lubricants, retail and advanced low carbon mobility solutions
  • BP and RIL expect the company to grow rapidly to meet India’s growing energy and mobility needs. India is expected to be the fastest growing fuel market in the world over the next 20 years, and the number of passenger cars is expected to increase by almost six times over the period.
  • RBML aims to expand its current retail fuel network from over 1,400 retail locations to 5,500 over the next five years. This rapid growth will require a fourfold increase in personnel employed at service stations, going from 20,000 to 80,000 during this period. The joint venture also aims to increase its presence from 30 to 45 airports in the coming years.
  • Reflecting the companies’ clear net ambitions, the new joint venture aims to provide Indian consumers with advanced low-emission fuels, EV charging and other low-carbon solutions over time.
  • RBML is also committed to decarbonising its own operations, as well as those of its wider ecosystem. RBML has received marketing authorization for transportation fuels, among other necessary regulatory and regulatory approvals.
  • The joint venture will start selling Castrol fuels and lubricants with immediate effect from its existing outlets, which will be changed to “Jio-bp” in due course.
