Third quarter 2020 trading update

Report this content

Aker BP produced 201.6 thousand barrels of oil equivalents per day (mboepd) in the third quarter, and remains on track to deliver on its full-year production guidance of 205-220 mboepd. The change from the previous quarter was mainly driven by planned maintenance and drilling activities.

Total petroleum revenues increased compared to previous quarter as higher oil and gas prices more than compensated for lower sold volume.
