30. May 2018

Aker BP has made a gas discovery in the Barents Sea, and it is being analysed.

The gas discovery was made in the Svanefjell prospect in the Barents Sea.

“Per today it is not considered to be commercial, but we will re-evaluate the volume and commerciality if it is concluded that the gas is in gas hydrate phase,” says SVP Exploration in Aker BP, Gro Gunleiksrud Haatvedt.
