Aker BP has entered into drilling and wells alliance agreements with Noble Corporation, Odfjell Drilling and Halliburton. Through the last five years the Jack-up Rig Alliance and the Semi Rig Alliance have delivered over 100 wells and world-class drilling operations on the Norwegian shelf. Now the alliance partners team up to deliver even more wells in the coming five years.

In a tumultuous year of change in the world, high impact drilling in 2022 remained at a similar level to 2021, with 81 high impact wells completing. Performance improved with discovered resource increasing from 7.4bnboe in 2021 to a preliminary estimate of 9.2bnboe in 2022, and the commercial success rate, i.e., the proportion of wells which may result in a potentially commercial development, increasing from 29% in 2021 to 36%.
