Aker BP offered exploration license in the UK sector

Aker BP UK Limited, a subsidiary of Aker BP, has been offered a 50 percent stake in a license area within the UK North Sea sector. The license area is located near the Norwegian border, in close proximity to the Alvheim field operated by Aker BP.

In the 33rd UK Offshore Licensing Round, DNO and Aker BP have each been offered a 50 percent interest in the license consisting of blocks 9/9f, 9/10c, 9/14c and 9/15d. DNO is offered operatorship for the license.

“The petroleum systems and plays in this region extend across the UK-Norway border. Our objective with this license is to explore the resource potential within the greater Alvheim area”, said Olav Blaich, VP Exploration at Aker BP.

The work program commitments for the offered blocks include obtaining 3D seismic data and conducting studies for the area.
