Got sent this in email today, it's from 1999, or so I was told. Sorry if this has been up before.

Quite literally! Great find and thanks BerkeleyGal for posting it.
I almost want to say it was an "early warning ad".

It turns out its a fake. A company designed it for a T-shirt.

That was when BP bought out some of Gulf oil (80's -90s,) and brought BP oil to American shores.
I didnt know they were literally bring oil to American shores.

Looks like another thread for the [HOAX!] forum.

Well, I said I got it in an email today from a friend, she said it was was 1999, how should I know that they didn't start that logo until 2000. I just posted it, is all, I thought it was interesting.

If it's hoax material then so be it.. I really don't give a care.

BP brand and logo

BP goes ‘beyond petroleum’

Then in 2000 BP, now a group of companies that included Amoco, ARCO and Castrol, unveiled a new global brand with a new mark, a sunburst of green, yellow and white symbolizing dynamic energy in all its forms. It was called the Helios after the sun god of ancient Greece.

In a press release announcing the change, the group said it had decided to retain the BP name because of its recognition around the world and because it stood for the new company’s aspirations: ‘better people, better products, big picture, beyond petroleum.’
