Merger between Aker BP and Lundin Energy’s E&P business completed

Lundin Energy’s E&P business was transferred to Aker BP on 30 June. “Our ambition is to create the world’s best oil and gas company with low costs, low emissions, profitable growth and attractive dividends. We will also play an important role in the global energy transition,” says Aker BP CEO, Karl Johnny Hersvik.

The merged company is the second largest operating company on the Norwegian continental shelf (NCS). The company has a substantial resource base which provides a very good foundation for further growth and leads the way in terms of both low costs and low emissions per barrel.

“In 2016, Aker ASA worked in tandem with bp to merge Det Norske and BP Norge into Aker BP. The ambition back then was to create the leading exploration and production company offshore. Now we’re taking another big step, in cooperation with the Lundin family. Together, we will work to develop Aker BP into the oil and gas company of the future. We will lead the way when it comes to low costs, low carbon, profitable growth and attractive dividends. We will also take the lead to bring about fundamental improvements, such as through digitalisation,” says chair of Aker BP’s board, Øyvind Eriksen.
