Aker BP operates in the oil and gas sector. Expertise is found in development, commissioning, and production at sea, where projects are managed both on their own and in collaboration with other partners. The vision is to be an active and long-term manager of oil platforms around Norway's sea area. The company was formed in 2016 as a merger of Aker, BP, and the Norwegian Oil Company. The business is managed by the head office at Fornebu in Bærum.
