Vision and Values

Our vision and values reflect what we stand for as a company, the way we work and the results we create.


Aker BP has an ambitious and inspiring vision. In 2016, we demonstrated capabilities to grow and delivered very good results. With the combined strengths of the merged companies and close links to BP p.l.c, Aker BP has a strong foundation to deliver the vison. We have high quality staff with continuous focus on improvement. Our four key pillars below are vital in unleashing talent and deliver values:

  • Reorganizing the value chain with strategic partnerships and alliances
  • Value chain based on a shared LEAN understanding, toolbox and culture
  • Be at the forefront for digitizing E&P
  • Flexible business model ready for growth and volatility


Our values are the foundation for our behaviors and provides a clear steer for how we work. We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit. Everybody who works for Aker BP must know and comply with our values. Requirements alone do not form our behaviors. Our behaviors comes from inspiration from people who follow them. People inspire and engage; systems do not.
