    Some sites list it as BP plc and other sites list it as BP plc (ADR) but both use the same symbol BP so they are both the same ADR.

    BP (ADR) trades on the NYSE in US Dollars. Trading symbol BP

    BP.L trades on the FTSE in London in Pound Sterling.

    You buy the one that matches your home currency. Roughly 6 of the US ADR's BP equal 1 share of the Pound Sterling trade BP.L
