 LONDON, April 1 /PRNewswire/ -- Syncordia, BT's global network outsourcing subsidiary, has been awarded a contract by BP (British Petroleum) to manage a significant part of the company's global communications technology services and infrastructure.
 Under the terms of the contract placed with Syncordia's UK affiliate, Syncordia will manage all voice, data, video and massaging services to BP Exploration and BP corporate operations at Aberdeen, Glasgow, Stockley Park, Harlow and London in the UK, and Stavanger in Norway. BP and Syncordia are also negotiating to include additional sites worldwide.
 Today's announcement is part of BP's strategy to outsource major elements of its telecommunications and information technology infrastructure.
