Det norske has grown tremendously this year. In a short while it will become Aker BP with a portfolio of some 100 licenses.

The merger between BP and Det norske will significantly strengthen the combined company’s operations, cost efficiency and growth potential.
Aker BP will hold a portfolio of 97 licenses on the Norwegian Continental Shelf, of which they are the operator on 46 licenses. The combined company will hold an estimated 723 million barrels of oil equivalent P50 reserves, with a 2015 joint production of approximately 122,000 barrels of oil equivalents per day.
Det norske and BP had at the end of 2015 a combined workforce of approximately 1,400 employees.
In November we will have the latest news from Det norske. Gro Haatvedt, SVP Exploration, will give a key note during the first day of the conference «NCS Prospects – The Exploration Strategy Conference«.

NCS Prospects – The Exploration Strategy Conference – organized jointly by GeoPublishing and Rystad Energy, brings together the larger exploration North Sea community to exchange expert insight and discuss how to go about exploration in a short and long term perspective.
During the two-day conference and exhibition, we gather a multitude of players on the Norwegian Continental Shelf – governmental organizations, oil companies, oil service companies, the financial industry and consultants – in an attempt to investigate the future of exploration in mature and frontier basins.
