Aker BP delivered record strong financial results for the first quarter 2022, with operating profit of USD 1,775 million and net profit of USD 537 million.

Highlights for the quarter:

- High oil and gas prices and strong financial performance
- Stable production with increased gas share
- Initiated gas blowdown at Skarv to boost gas exports
- Hod production started early April
- PDOs approved for Kobra East Gekko and Hanz
- NOAKA and Valhall/King Lear projects on track for 2022 PDOs
- Lundin transaction approved by shareholders, planned closing 30 June
- Quarterly dividend of USD 0.475 per share approved

“First quarter 2022 was another record-breaking quarter for Aker BP, driven by high oil and gas prices combined with stable production, low cost and low emissions. In early April, Hod started production as the first project approved under the temporary tax rules in Norway. We have also initiated the gas blowdown at Skarv, which will further strengthen our ability to deliver gas to the European market,” says Karl Johnny Hersvik, CEO of Aker BP.

“Our growth ambitions remain firm. With upcoming projects like NOAKA and Valhall/King Lear, combined with the planned acquisition of Lundin Energy’s oil and gas business, we are further strengthening our position as a leading E&P company and a driving force on the Norwegian Continental Shelf,” Hersvik concludes.
