BP has (or had; they are relinquishing some) over 450 leases and produces from 20+ fields as operator and has shares in many more (second link). How many platforms might be associated with those 20+ fields is not something I’ve found, but likely no more than 2 or 3, and usually 1 each (Thunder Horse, the largest in the Gulf, is one platform supporting 7 separate wells).
If you meant “drilling rigs” rather than platforms, then it is probably zero – operating companies lease drilling rigs from drilling companies rather than owning their own rigs. They would probably have equity ownership in a platform, however.
BP is the largest producer in the Gulf. (first link)
