Aker BP Receives Approval for Nine Field Development Plans

The Norwegian Ministry of Petroleum and Energy (MPE) has approved a total of nine plans for development and operation (PDOs) and one plan for installation and operation (PIO), all operated by Aker BP.

All of the development plans were submitted to the MPE in December last year. Further details about the PDO approvals for each of the development projects:

The total recoverable resources from these development projects are estimated to above 700 million barrels of oil equivalent (mmboe) net for Aker BP, with an average break-even price of USD 35-40 per barrel.

Along with several measures to increase efficiency and recovery, these development projects will enable Aker BP’s oil and gas production to grow from around 400,000 barrels per day in 2022 to around 525,000 barrels in 2028.

Aker BP’s operated development projects are expected to contribute to more than 150,000 full-time equivalents in Norway in supplier companies across the country. In addition to ensuring activity and jobs, the projects contribute to developing technological expertise in the Norwegian industry in the period before renewable projects are expected to increase in scale.

With an average oil price of USD 65 per barrel, these development projects will generate net tax payments to the Norwegian state totaling NOK 160 billion in real terms, and thus make an important contribution to financing welfare schemes and strengthen the state’s ability to support the energy transition.
