Extensive track-record

Based on the technological competence and extensive oil services experience gained over decades and recently inspired by Aker BP’s record of success in its way of working on the Norwegian Continental Shelf; Aker Energy will be able to deliver streamlined fast-track development projects offshore Ghana.

Aker Energy will base its operating model on that of Aker BP, building its operations on an integrated, flexible and efficient structure for decision making. The integration is based on strong alliances with suppliers, developing cost efficient solutions.

The block contains discovered contingent resources estimated to be 550 million barrels of oil equivalent (2C), in addition to a significant prospective volume upside of around 400 million barrels from additional appraisal activities.

Building up the Ghanaian oil and gas industry
