Aker BP ASA
$500,000,000 2.875% Senior Notes due 2026

Aker BP ASA, incorporated as a public limited liability company under the laws of Norway (the "Company"), is offering $500,000,000 aggregate
principal amount of its 2.875% Senior Notes due 2026 (the "2026 Notes") and $750,000,000 aggregate principal amount of its 4.000% Senior Notes due 2031 (the

January 15, 2021. The 2026 Notes will mature on January 15, 2026. The 2031 Notes will mature on January 15, 2031.
At any time prior to the maturity date of the 2026 Notes, we may redeem all or part of the 2026 Notes by paying the redemption prices set forth in this
offering memorandum (the "Offering Memorandum"), including at 100% of the principal amount of such 2026 Notes, plus accrued and unpaid interest, if any, if
the redemption occurs on or after December 15, 2025.
At any time prior to the maturity date of the 2031 Notes, we may redeem all or part of the 2031 Notes by paying the redemption prices set forth in this
Offering Memorandum, including at 100% of the principal amount of such 2031 Notes, plus accrued and unpaid interest, if any, if the redemption occurs on or after

portion of its Notes at 101% of their principal amount, plus accrued and unpaid interest, if any. In the event of certain developments affecting taxation, we may
redeem all, but not less than all, of each series of the Notes.
The Notes will be senior unsecured debt of the Company and will rank pari passu in right of payment with all of the Company's existing and future senior
obligations, including the Revolving Credit Facility, the Existing Senior Notes due 2024, the Existing 5.875% Senior Notes due 2025, the Existing 3.000% Senior
Notes due 2025 and the Existing Senior Notes due 2030 (each as defined herein), and senior in right of payment to all of the Company's future subordinated

such debt.
This Offering Memorandum includes information on the terms of the Notes, including redemption and repurchase prices, covenants, events of default
and transfer restrictions.
There is currently no public market for the Notes. Application will be made to list the Notes on the Securities Official List of the Luxembourg Stock

be listed on the Securities Official List of the Exchange or that any such listing will be maintained.

Professional Investors and ECPs Only Target Market
Solely for the purposes of the product approval process of the manufacturers, the target market
assessment in respect of the Notes described in this Offering Memorandum has led to the conclusion that: (i) the
target market for the Notes is eligible counterparties and professional clients only, each as defined in MiFID II;
and (ii) all channels for distribution of the Notes to eligible counterparties and professional clients are appropriate.
Any distributor should take into consideration the manufacturers' target market assessment; however, a distributor
subject to MiFID II is responsible for undertaking its own target market assessment in respect of the Notes (by
either adopting or refining the manufacturers' target market assessment) and determining appropriate distribution
channels.
Prohibition of Sales to EEA Retail Investors
The Notes are not intended to be offered, sold or otherwise made available to and should not be offered,
sold or otherwise made available to any retail investor in the EEA or the United Kingdom. For these purposes, a
retail investor means a person who is one (or more) of: (i) a retail client as defined in point (11) of Article 4(1) of
MiFID II; or (ii) a customer within the meaning of the Insurance Distribution Directive, where that customer
would not qualify as a professional client as defined in point (10) of Article 4(1) of MiFID II; or (iii) not a qualified
investor as defined in the Prospectus Regulation. Consequently no key information document required by the
PRIIPs Regulation for offering or selling the Notes described in this Offering Memorandum or otherwise making
them available to retail investors in the EEA or the United Kingdom has been prepared and therefore offering or
selling the Notes or otherwise making them available to any retail investor in the EEA or the United Kingdom
may be unlawful under the PRIIPs Regulation.

analysis of financial condition and results of operations," "Our business" and other sections and in the quarterly
and annual financial statements incorporated by reference into the Offering Memorandum. These forward-looking

"suggests," "plan," "believe," "intend," "estimates," "targets," "projects," "should," "could," "would," "may,"
"will," "forecast," and other similar expressions or, in each case, their negative or other variations or comparable

number of places throughout this Offering Memorandum and include statements regarding our intentions, beliefs
or current expectations concerning, among other things, our results of operations, financial condition, liquidity,
prospects, growth, strategies and the industry in which we operate.
We caution you that forward-looking statements are not guarantees of future performance and that our
actual results of operations, financial condition and liquidity, and the development of the industry in which we

contained in this Offering Memorandum. In addition, even if our results of operations, financial condition and

of such statement, and we undertake no obligation and do not intend to update such statements. Comparisons of
results for current and any prior periods are not intended to express any future trends or indications of future
performance, unless expressed as such, and should only be viewed as historical data.

and depend on circumstances that may or may not occur in the future and may not be within our control. We
