Payments of dividends in sterling

On 7 February 2012, the Directors of BP p.l.c. announced that the interim dividend for the fourth quarter 2011 would be US$0.08 per ordinary share (US$0.48 per ADS). This interim dividend is to be paid on 30 March 2012 to shareholders on the share register on 17 February 2012.
