Independent review report to BP p.l.c.
We have been engaged by the company to
review the condensed set of financial statements in the half-yearly financial report for
the six months ended 30 June 2009 which comprises the group income statement, group balance
sheet, group statement of comprehensive income, group statement of changes in equity,
condensed group cash flow statement, the related tables on pages 14 and 15, and Notes 1 to
9. We have read the other information contained in the half-yearly financial report and
considered whether it contains any apparent misstatements or material inconsistencies with
the information in the condensed set of financial statements.
This report is made solely to the
company in accordance with guidance contained in International Standard on Review
Engagements (UK and Ireland) 2410, 'Review of Interim Financial Information Performed by
