Change in reporting language to English

24. October 2016

Aker BP ASA submitted an application to the Oslo Stock Exchange in October 2016 seeking dispensation from the requirement to use Norwegian language when publicly disclosing information, pursuant to Section 5-13 of the Securities Trading Act.

The application has been approved. As per October 24, 2016 Aker BP ASA will therefore file stock exchange notices, quarterly and half-yearly financial reports only in English.
