Optional Redemption:    Prior to September 17, 2051 (the date that is six months prior to the scheduled maturity date for the 2052 Notes), BP Capital America has the right to redeem the 2052 Notes, in whole or in part, at any time and from time to time at a redemption price equal to the greater of (i) 100% of the principal amount of the 2052 Notes to be redeemed and (ii) the sum of the present values of the remaining scheduled payments of principal and interest on the 2052 Notes to be redeemed that would be due if such Notes matured on September 17, 2051 (not including any portion of payments of interest accrued and unpaid to the redemption date) discounted to the redemption date on a semi-annual basis (assuming a 360-day year consisting of twelve 30-day months) at the treasury rate plus 20 basis points, plus in either case accrued and unpaid interest to the date of redemption. On or after September 17, 2051 (the date that is six months prior to the scheduled maturity date for the 2052 Notes), BP Capital America has the right to redeem the 2052 Notes, in whole or in part, at any time and from time to time at a redemption price equal to 100% of the principal amount of the 2052 Notes to be redeemed, plus accrued and unpaid interest, if any, thereon to, but excluding, the date of redemption. For purposes of determining the optional redemption price, the following definitions are applicable. “Treasury rate” means, with respect to any redemption date, the rate per annum equal to the semi-annual equivalent yield to maturity or interpolated (on a day count basis) of the comparable treasury issue, assuming a price for the comparable treasury issue (expressed as a percentage of its principal amount) equal to the comparable treasury price for such redemption date. “Comparable treasury issue” means the U.S. Treasury security or securities selected by the quotation agent as having an actual or interpolated maturity comparable to the remaining term of the 2052 Notes to be redeemed that would be utilized, at the time of selection and in accordance with customary financial practice, in pricing new issues of corporate debt securities of comparable maturity to the remaining term of such Notes.


   “Comparable treasury price” means, with respect to any redemption date, the average of the reference treasury dealer quotations for such redemption date. “Quotation agent” means one of the reference treasury dealers appointed by BP Capital America. “Reference treasury dealer” means one of Barclays Capital Inc., Goldman Sachs & Co. LLC, HSBC Securities (USA) Inc., J.P. Morgan Securities LLC, Morgan Stanley & Co. LLC. and TD Securities (USA) LLC or one of their affiliates, which is a primary U.S. government securities dealer in the United States (a “primary treasury dealer”), and their respective successors, and two other primary treasury dealers selected by BP Capital America, provided, however, that if any of the foregoing shall cease to be a primary treasury dealer, BP Capital America shall substitute therefor another primary treasury dealer. “Reference treasury dealer quotations” means with respect to each reference treasury dealer and any redemption date, the average, as determined by the quotation agent, of the bid and asked prices for the comparable treasury issue (expressed in each case as a percentage of its principal amount) quoted in writing to the quotation agent by such reference treasury dealer at 5:00 p.m. New York time on the third business day preceding such redemption date.

These additional Notes will be deemed part of the same series as and fungible with the 2052 Notes issued pursuant to the prospectus supplement and will provide the holders of these additional Notes the right to vote together with holders of the 2052 Notes issued pursuant to the prospectus supplement, provided that such additional Notes will be issued with no more than de minimis original issue discount or will be part of a “qualified reopening” for U.S. federal income tax purposes.

Supplemental Information on U.S. Taxation:    BP Capital America expects that the 2061 Notes will be treated as issued in a “qualified reopening” of the outstanding $1,250,000,000 3.379% Guaranteed Notes due 2061 (CUSIP: 10373Q BQ2, ISIN: US10373QBQ29), previously issued by BP Capital America for U.S. federal income tax purposes. Debt securities issued in a qualified reopening for U.S. federal income tax purposes are deemed to be part of the same issue as the original debt securities. Under such treatment, the 2061 Notes would be deemed to have the same issue date and the same adjusted issue price as the Original 2061 Notes for U.S. federal income tax purposes. Payments on the 2061 Notes that are attributable to accrued interest for the period from and including August 8, 2021, up to and excluding the date of delivery which is expected to be September 17, 2021 should not be includible in income.

UK MiFIR professionals / ECPs-only — the UK manufacturer’s target market (UK MiFIR product governance) is eligible counterparties and professional clients only (all distribution channels).

No EEA PRIIPs KID — no EEA PRIIPs key information document (KID) has been prepared as the Notes are not available to retail in the EEA.

We expect that delivery of the Notes will be made to investors on or about September 17, 2021 (such settlement being referred to as “T+3”). Under Rule 15c6-1 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, trades in the secondary market are required to settle in two business days, unless the parties to any such trade expressly agree otherwise. Accordingly, purchasers who wish to trade the Notes prior to the second business day before the delivery of the Notes will be required, by virtue of the fact that the Notes initially will settle T+3, to specify an alternative settlement arrangement at the time of any such trade to prevent a failed settlement. Purchasers of the Notes who wish to trade the Notes prior to their date of delivery hereunder should consult their own advisors.
