Exploration

Aker BP has good access to licences and operatorships on the Norwegian Continental Shelf and is an active explorer.

In recent years about two thirds of the Aker BP’s exploration budget has been invested in the mature areas in the North Sea, where the infrastructure is good and the discovery rate still high. The remaining resources have been invested primarily in the Barents Sea and in the more immature areas in the North Sea.
