CORPORATE STRUCTURE BP Oil Australia Pty Ltd (formerly known as BP Australia Holdings Limited) is a company limited by shares and incorporated and domiciled in Australia. Its ultimate parent company is BP p.l.c. BP Australia has prepared a consolidated financial report incorporating the entities that it controlled during the financial year. EMPLOYEES The consolidated entity employed 2,808 employees as at 31 December 2001 (2000: 2,403 employees). PRINCIPAL ACTIVITIES The principal activities of the Consolidated Entity constituted by the Company and the entities it controlled from time to time during the financial year were in the refining, transportation and marketing of petroleum products and the manufacture and marketing of photovoltaic cells and related solar powered equipment. DIVIDENDS No dividend was declared or paid during 2001 (2000: Nil). 3
  5. 5. BP OIL AUSTRALIA PTY LTD (FORMERLY BP AUSTRALIA HOLDINGS LIMITED) DIRECTORS’ REPORT continued REVIEW AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS The financial report of the Consolidated Entity for the year shows an operating profit before income tax of $37.3 million (2000: $166.9 million profit). The profit of the Consolidated Entity for the year after income tax was $44.8 million (2000: $127.2 million profit). The net profit attributable to direct outside equity interest for the year was $4.0 million. Regional refining margins continued to be poor throughout the year, reflecting the surplus refining capacity in the Pacific Rim. Intense competition continues in the Australian marketplace. Oil prices have been at historically high prices throughout the year, which maintained pressure on historic cost operating margins as marketers struggled to pass on price increases in an increasingly competitive environment. Hence the organisation has had to continue its cost reduction and revenue enhancement initiatives to meet income targets. There was no significant change in the affairs of the Consolidated Entity that occurred during the financial year ended 31st December 2001. SIGNIFICANT EVENTS AFTER THE BALANCE DATE On 2 January 2002, the Company repaid the trade bill outstanding at the end of the financial year. The amount repaid was $35 million. There has been a restructure of the BP Group’s assets in Australasia, intended to rationalise and simplify the BP Group’s operations in the region. On 26 March 2002, the Company’s name changed to BP Australia Holdings Pty Ltd as a result of a change of status. On 15 April 2002, the Company’s name changed to BP Oil Australia Pty Ltd. On 1 April 2002, 100% of the shares of the Company were acquired by BP Australia Group Pty Ltd (formerly known as BP Timor Gap West Pty Ltd). This transaction also involved the acquisition by BP Australia Group Pty Ltd of 100% of the shares in Burmah Oil Investments (Australia) Pty Ltd and BP Solar Australia Pty Ltd. The combined consideration for the acquisition of these three companies was US$519 million cash and the issue of US$534 million worth of shares to BP Global Investments Limited (subject to an adjustment payment). A consequence of BP Australia Group Pty Ltd’s acquisition of the Company, is that the Company is no longer the ultimate holding company of the majority of the BP companies operating in Australia. The ultimate holding company of the majority of the BP companies operating in Australia is BP Regional Australasia Holdings Pty Ltd (formerly BP Amoco Australia Holdings Pty Ltd), which acquired BP Australia Group Pty Ltd at market value on 26 March 2002. On 1 April 2002, BP Australia Group Pty Ltd issued additional shares to BP Global Investments Limited (incorporated in England) thereby reducing BP Regional Australasia Holdings Pty Ltd’s ownership to approximately 75%. On 1 April 2002, the shareholding of BP Australia Capital Markets Limited (formerly BP Finance Australia (CP) Limited), transferred to BP Global Investments Limited for a cash consideration of $2. BP Australia Capital Markets Limited was a controlled entity of the Company during 2001. No other matters or circumstances has arisen since the end of the financial year that has significantly affected or may significantly affect the operations of the Company, the results of those operations, or the state of affairs of the Company, in subsequent years. SIGNIFICANT CHANGES IN THE STATE OF AFFAIRS There have been no significant changes in the state of affairs of the Consolidated Entity other than those mentioned elsewhere in this report. 4
  6. 6. BP OIL AUSTRALIA PTY LTD (FORMERLY BP AUSTRALIA HOLDINGS LIMITED) DIRECTORS’ REPORT continued LIKELY DEVELOPMENTS AND EXPECTED RESULTS In all of its business the Consolidated Entity will continue to look for opportunities to improve its profitability and competitiveness. Profitability will remain sensitive to the competitive pressures in the domestic and international marketplace, the exchange rate of the Australian dollar, international oil prices and government policy and action on domestic prices. Further information as to likely developments and their expected results have not been included in this report as it is likely to result in unreasonable prejudice to the Consolidated Entity. INDEMNIFICATION AND INSURANCE OF DIRECTORS AND OFFICERS The Company's ultimate holding company, BP p.l.c., maintains insurance for directors and officers of all its Group companies insuring them against the financial consequences of actions brought against them for acts or omissions in the performance of their duties. ENVIRONMENTAL REGULATION AND PERFORMANCE “ The world’s need for energy is growing steadily day by day. Energy and materials, used safely and efficiency, are essential to the prosperity and growth of every country and every region in the world. Sustaining and enhancing our quality of life depends on them. To play a leading role in meeting these needs from oil, gas, solar power and petrochemicals without damaging the environment is BP’s goal. Ours is a positive involvement. Innovation will be the hallmark of the way we work with people, technology, assets and relationships. We will always be constructive. Our success depends on our making, and being seen to make, a distinctive contribution in all we do.” What we stand for…” BP’s Health, Safety and Environment commitment states that: “Our goals are simply stated - no accidents, no harm to people and no damage to the environment. We will continue to drive down the environmental and health impact of our operations by reducing waste, emissions and discharges, and using energy efficiently.” and “Openly report our performance, good and bad”. BP’s focus is on reducing our environmental footprint in Australia and around the world, and ensuring our staff and customers are safe and healthy in all interactions with our operations and products. We are doing this by targeting those parts of our business which have the greatest environmental and health & safety impact as articulated by Australians. Key environmental concerns to Australians include local air quality, climate change and water use. There is a culture of continual improvement within BP. This is supported by a robust HSE management and assurance system, based around the 13 expectations highlighted in the document ‘getting HSE right’, yearly HSE performance contracts and regular HSE assurance activities. This has driven us far beyond compliance, where adhering to State and Commonwealth environmental legislation and regulations is accepted as a minimum standard. Details of our environmental performance were published this year in our first ‘Triple Bottom Line’ Report available from the Company or from the web site at www.bp.com.au. Examples of how we reduced the impacts of our operations, and pursued our sustainable development journey include: • BP’s Kwinana Refinery had their Environment Management System certified to ISO14001( Environment Management Systems) in 2000, and Bulwer Island Refinery had its system certified at the end of 2001. • BP was one of the first signatories to a Greenhouse Challenge Co-Operative Agreement with the Commonwealth Government, and has reduced CO2(e) emissions by greater than 700,000 tonnes since 1996. 5
  7. 7. BP OIL AUSTRALIA PTY LTD (FORMERLY BP AUSTRALIA HOLDINGS LIMITED) DIRECTORS’ REPORT continued • BP is an industry leader in adopting innovative Greenhouse abatement policies and programmes, exemplified by our internal emissions trading scheme. BP commenced a pilot internal emissions trading programme in 1998, with Kwinana Refinery being a founding member. 2000 saw the role out of Emissions Trading to the rest of BP. • BP had its emission inventories verified as part of the Greenhouse Challenge Independent Verification Program. • BP introduced a new programme called BP Global Choice, which enables customers to offset their car’s greenhouse gas emissions when they buy BP Ultimate petrol. Under the programme, a part of the purchase price paid by motorists who choose to use BP Ultimate, is used for investment in a series of independently verified and Federal Government endorsed greenhouse abatement projects under the ‘Greenhouse Friendly’ program. • BP has pushed ahead on our cleaner fuels agenda and introduced: - Low sulphur diesel in Western Australia and Queensland, and can produce Ultra low sulphur Diesel (50 ppm) at the Kwinana Refinery and Bulwer Island Refinery. - Lead replacement petrol in the Australian states of Western Australia, South Australia, New South Wales, Australian Capital Territory, Queensland (we were the first company to introduce Lead Replacement Petrol in Australia) - Invested approx. AUD$300 million to upgrade our Bulwer Island Refinery to produce cleaner fuels. - EcoUltra, one of the cleanest diesel fuels in the world with a sulphur level of just 50 ppm – a 100 fold reduction in the current national standard of 5000 ppm - Australia’s cleanest petrol, BP Ultimate, which has the lowest levels of benzene and sulphur and produces less pollution than other Australian petrols. Benzene levels have been reduced from 2% to 1%. • BP was awarded a grant from the Federal Government under the Greenhouse Gas Abatement Program to assist with the introduction of fuels containing 10% ethanol to be manufactured at the Bulwer Island Refinery. • BP currently has 23 solar powered service station sites in New South Wales, Queensland, Western Australia, South Australia and Victoria. • BP is planting trees that helps reduce global warming and land degradation, and has supported the planting of 1.4 million trees in Western Australia since 1998. • Part of the Bulwer Island Refinery clean fuels upgrade requires an increase in water usage. This increase was achieved by recycling treated wastewater from the near by Council operated Lugage Point wastewater treatment plant. The wastewater is now further purified and then supplied to BP for use in cooling systems, fire water and steam generation. This provides two benefits: - Reduced treated sewerage discharges to Brisbane River; and - Reduced fresh water consumption for the refinery operations. The BP Group has been publishing a stand alone Environment Report since the early 90’s. For a full picture of our environmental performance during 2001, this report should be read in conjunction with our BP Group 2000 Environment report, the Australian location report is contained on the BP Group website and listed under “BP alive”. (www.bpamoco.com/alive) and the Australian Triple Bottom Line report referred to earlier. In conclusion the Directors are not aware of any breaches of environmental legislation during the financial year, by the entity, which are material in nature, and have no reason to believe that any possible legal or remedial action would result in a material cost, or loss to the company or the entity. 6

The financial report is a general purpose financial report which has been prepared in accordance with the requirements of the Corporations Act which includes applicable Accounting Standards. Other mandatory professional reporting requirements (Urgent Issues Group Consensus Views) have also been complied with. Changes in Accounting policies The accounting policies adopted by the consolidated group are consistent with those of the prior year. Principles of Consolidation The consolidated financial statements are those of the consolidated entity, comprising BP Australia Holdings Limited (the parent entity) and all the entities which BP Australia Holdings Limited controlled from time to time during the year and at balance date. Information from the financial statements of subsidiaries is included from the date the parent entity obtains control until such time as control ceases. Where there is a loss of control of a subsidiary, the consolidated financial statements include the results for the part of the reporting period during which the parent entity had control. The financial statements of subsidiaries are prepared for the same reporting period as the parent entity, using consistent accounting policies. All intercompany balances and transactions, including unrealised profits arising from intra group transactions, have been eliminated in full. Foreign Currencies Translation of foreign currency transactions Transactions in foreign currencies of entities within the consolidated entity are converted to local currency at the rate of exchange ruling at the date of the transaction. Amounts payable to and by the entities within the consolidated entity that are outstanding at the balance date and are denominated in foreign currencies have been converted to local currency using rates of exchange ruling at the end of the financial year. Exchange gains and losses on currency trading have been determined by referring to the spot rate on the transaction date relative to the spot rate at balance date. Specific Hedges Where a purchase or sale is specifically hedged, exchange gains or losses on the hedging transaction arising up to the date of purchase or sale and costs, premiums and discounts relative to the hedging transaction are included with the purchase or sale. Exchange gains and losses arising on the hedge transaction after that date are taken to the Statement of Financial Performance. 11
  13. 13. BP OIL AUSTRALIA PTY LTD (FORMERLY BP AUSTRALIA HOLDINGS LIMITED) NOTES continued Cash and cash equivalents Cash on hand and in banks and short term deposits are stated at the lower of cost and net realisable value. For the purposes of the Statement of Cash Flows, cash includes cash on hand and in banks, and money market investments readily convertible to cash within 2 working days, net of outstanding bank overdrafts. Cash flows of the Parent Entity are not shown, as all cash transactions are made on behalf of the entity by BP Finance Australia Limited, a subsidiary. Investments All investments (including in associates) are carried at the lower of cost and recoverable amount. Inventories Inventories are valued at the lower of cost and net realisable value. Cost includes appropriate production overheads and is determined on the first in first out basis. Trade and other receivables Trade receivables are recognized and carried at original invoice amount less a provision for any uncollectable debts. An estimate for doubtful debts is made when collection of the full amount is no longer probable. Bad debts are written-off as incurred. Receivables from related parties are recognized and carried at the nominal amount due. Interest is taken up as income on an accrual basis. Bills of exchange and promissory notes are measured at the lower of cost and net realizable value. Recoverable Amount Non-current assets are not carried at an amount above their recoverable amounts, and where carrying values exceed this recoverable amount, assets are written-down. In determining recoverable amount, the expected net cash flows have not been discounted to their present value using a market determined risk adjusted discount rate. Property Plant & Equipment Cost Property, plant and equipment are carried at cost. Depreciation Depreciation is provided on a straight line basis on all property, plant and equipment, other than freehold land. Major depreciation periods are: 2001 2000 Freehold buildings 20 - 30 years 20 - 30 years Plant and equipment 2.5 - 30 years 2.5 - 30 years Goodwill Goodwill represents the excess of the purchase consideration over the fair value of identifiable net assets acquired at the time of acquisition of a business or shares in a controlled entity. Goodwill is amortised by the straight-line method over the period during which benefits are expected to be received. This is taken as being 20 years. Provisions The provision for restoration represents to the provision for environmental clean up of terminals, recognised when there is a present obligation. This includes provisions for terminals that have been sold, planned to be sold or operating terminals where there is a known problem, which requires attention. 12
  14. 14. BP OIL AUSTRALIA PTY LTD (FORMERLY BP AUSTRALIA HOLDINGS LIMITED) NOTES continued Revenue Recognition Revenue is recognised to the extent that it is probable that the economic benefits will flow to the entity and the revenue can be reliably measured. The following specific recognition criteria must also be met before revenue is recognised: Sale of Goods Control of the goods has passed to the buyer Rendering of Services Control of a right to be compensated for the services has been attained. Interest Control of a right to receive the interest payment. Dividends Control of a right to receive the dividend payment. Employee Entitlements Provision is made for employee entitlement benefits accumulated as a result of employees rendering services up to the reporting date. These benefits include wages and salaries, annual leave and long service leave. Liabilities arising in respect of wages and salaries, annual leave, and any other employee entitlements expected to be settled within 12 months of the reporting date are measured at their nominal amounts. All other entitlement liabilities are measured at the present value of the estimated future cash outflow to be made in respect of services provided by employees up to the reporting date. In determining the present value of future cash outflows, the interest rates attaching to the government securities, which have terms to maturity approximating the term of the related liability are used. The value of the employee share scheme described in note 25 is not being charged as an employee entitlement expense. The contributions made to the defined benefits superannuation fund are charged against profits when due. Trade and other payables Liabilities for trade creditors and other amounts are carried at cost which is the fair value of the consideration to be paid in the future for goods and services received, whether or not billed to the consolidated entity. Payables to related parties are carried at the principal amount. Interest, when charged by the lender, is recognised as an expense on an accrual basis. Deferred cash settlements are recognised at the present value of the outstanding consideration payable on the acquisition of an asset discounted at prevailing commercial borrowing rates. 13
  15. 15. BP OIL AUSTRALIA PTY LTD (FORMERLY BP AUSTRALIA HOLDINGS LIMITED) NOTES continued Income Tax Expense Tax effect accounting is applied using the liability method whereby income tax is regarded as an expense and is calculated on the accounting profit after allowing for permanent differences. To the extent timing differences occur between the time items are recognised in the financial statements and when items are taken into account in determining taxable income, the net related taxation benefit or liability, calculated at current rates, is disclosed as a future income tax benefit or a provision for deferred income tax. The net future income tax benefit relating to tax losses and timing differences is not carried forward as an asset unless the benefit is virtually certain of being realised. Tax effect accounting in accordance with AASB 1020 has been adopted by all companies in the Consolidated Entity. The Consolidated Entity has included in its income tax expense the benefits arising from the intra-group transfer of tax losses permitted under Subdivision 170 of the Income Tax Assessment Act. Where consideration is to be given for these benefits from a related body corporate, which is not a member of the Consolidated Entity this has been included as income tax expense. Future income tax benefits related to tax losses and timing differences are not recognised as assets unless recovery is assured beyond any reasonable doubt. Accumulated benefits, which have not been brought to account, will only be realised if in the respective controlled entities: - the companies derive future assessable income of a nature and of an amount sufficient to enable the benefit from the deductions to be realised or are able to transfer the benefit to another related body corporate; - the companies continue to comply with the conditions for deductibility imposed by the law; and - there are no changes in tax legislation adversely affecting the companies in realising the benefit from the deductions. The timing of reversal of future income tax benefits and provision for deferred income tax is dependent on the outcome of future activities. All such balances are classified as non-current. Comparative information Certain comparative information, in respect of the year ended 31 December 2001, has been restated in several cases to ensure that a meaningful comparison can be made with the information of the current year due to the adoption of new and revised accounting standards AASB1018: Statement of Financial Performance, AASB1034: Financial Report Presentation and Disclosures and AASB1040: Statement of Financial Position. 14

PROPERTY, PLANT AND EQUIPMENT (cont’d) (a) Valuations In accordance with AASB 1010 “Recoverable Amount of Non Current Assets”, a directors’ valuation as at 31 December 2001 of the Consolidated Entity’s freehold land and buildings (held as at 31 December 2001) was carried out based upon work performed by an independent valuer, Charter Keck Cramer, which was based on the Arthur Andersen valuation at 31 December 1998. Arthur Anderson’s valuation was based upon indexing the independent valuations prepared as at 31 December 1995 by Edward Rushton Australia Pty Ltd. In undertaking the indexation exercise, Charter Keck Cramer made reference to the following material: • Sampling of statutory valuations for individual properties relevant to both 2001, and comparing movements on a regional basis; • Statistical material provided (where available) from the various Responsible Authorities; • Investment Performance Index for commercial property prepared by the Property Council of Australia; and • Charter Keck Cramer property sales database. The value of land and buildings in applying the above basis was determined at $290 million, excluding certain property located at the refineries and is based upon information provided by BP Australia Holdings Limited. No revaluation of Land and Buildings has been brought to account. Capital gains tax implications have not been taken into account in the above valuations as the Consolidated Entity does not expect a significant disposal of land and buildings in the foreseeable future that would give rise to capital gains tax. The Consolidated Entity has a set policy for regular valuation of freehold land and buildings at least once every three years.

The scheme enables eligible employees to acquire shares in BP p.l.c. at market value and receive an additional free share funded by the employing company for each share contributed by the employee. Employees and BP purchased and/or contributed 427,301 shares to the scheme in 2001 (2000: 421,541 shares). The market value of shares in BP p.l.c. at 31st December 2001 was $15.22/share (2000: $14.46/share). Superannuation Commitments Until December 1998, the BP Superannuation Fund was a defined benefit fund, with several accumulation benefits provided for within the Fund. In December 1998, a new accumulation section was introduced and the non-contributory defined benefit section closed to new members. Approximately 9% of the existing members elected to transfer to the new accumulation section. The Consolidated Entity remains committed to making contributions to the Fund on the basis of actuarial advice and in amounts to adequately fund the retirement benefits provided for in the rules of the Fund. It has been confirmed by the actuary that the BP Superannuation Fund would be able to satisfy all benefits that would be required in the event of: (a) termination of the fund (b) voluntary termination of the employment of each employee on the initiative of the employee; or (c) compulsory termination of the employment of each employee by the employer. Details of the defined benefit fund as extracted from its most recent actuarial valuation at 31st December 1998 are as follows: Consolidated $'000 Total present value of past liabilities 284,860 Total market value of assets 323,011 Actuarial Surplus 38,151 The Consolidated Entity has a policy of procuring actuarial valuations at least once every three years. The valuation of the BP Superannuation Fund as at 31 December 2001 is in the process of being performed, however the results of this valuation were not available prior to the completion of this annual report and therefore not disclosed. 30
