OFFERING MEMORANDUM
NOT FOR GENERAL DISTRIBUTION IN
THE UNITED STATES


Aker BP ASA
$750,000,000
43/4% Senior Notes due 2024
Aker BP ASA, incorporated as a public limited liability company under the laws of Norway (the "Company"),
is offering $750.0 million aggregate principal amount of its 43/4% Senior Notes due 2024 (the "Notes"). We will pay
interest on the Notes semi-annually on June 15 and December 15 of each year, commencing December 15, 2019. The
Notes will mature on June 15, 2024.
At any time on or after June 15, 2021 we may redeem all or part of the Notes by paying the redemption prices
set forth in this offering memorandum (the "Offering Memorandum"). Prior to June 15, 2021 we will be entitled, at our
option, to redeem all or a portion of the Notes by paying 100% of the principal amount of such Notes, plus accrued and
unpaid interest, if any, plus a "make whole" premium. In addition, prior to June 15, 2021 we may redeem, at our option,
up to 40% of the Notes with the net cash proceeds from certain equity offerings by paying the redemption price set out in
this Offering Memorandum. Upon the occurrence of certain events defined as constituting a change of control triggering
event, each holder may require us to repurchase all or a 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 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 2022, the Existing Senior Notes due 2025 and the NOK Bond (each as defined herein), and senior in right of
payment to all of the Company's future subordinated obligations. The Notes will be effectively subordinated to all of the
Company's existing and future secured debt to the extent of the value of the collateral securing 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 has been made to list the Notes on the Securities
Official List of the Luxembourg Stock Exchange (the "Exchange"), without admission to trading on one of the securities
markets operated by the Exchange. There can be no assurance that the Notes will be listed on the Securities Official List
of the Exchange or that any such listing will be maintained.
Investing in the Notes involves a high degree of risk. See the "Risk factors" section of this Offering
Memorandum beginning on page 20.
Price: 100.000% plus accrued interest, if any, from June 19, 2019.
The Notes have been delivered in book-entry form through The Depository Trust Company ("DTC") on
June 19, 2019 (the "Issue Date").
The Notes have not been and will not be registered under the U.S. Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the
"U.S. Securities Act"), or the securities laws of any other jurisdiction, and may not be offered or sold within the
United States except pursuant to an exemption from, or in a transaction not subject to, the registration
requirements of the U.S. Securities Act. In the United States, this offering is being made only to "qualified

United Kingdom This Offering Memorandum is directed only at persons ("Relevant Persons") who (i) fall
within Article 19(5) (investment professionals) of the Financial Services and Markets Act 2000 (Financial Promotion)
Order 2005, as amended, (ii) fall within Article 49(2)(a) to (d) (high net worth companies, unincorporated associations

THIS OFFERING MEMORANDUM CONTAINS IMPORTANT INFORMATION WHICH YOU
SHOULD READ BEFORE YOU MAKE ANY DECISION WITH RESPECT TO AN INVESTMENT IN THE
NOTES.
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. 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 Mediation 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 Directive.
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 has been prepared and
therefore offering or selling the Notes or otherwise making them available to any retail investor in the EEA may be
unlawful under the PRIIPS Regulation.

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 statements can be

"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 terminology. These forward-looking
statements include matters that are not historical facts. They appear in a 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 operate may
differ materially from those made, described in or suggested by the forward-looking statements contained in this Offering

industry in which we operate are consistent with the forward-looking statements contained in this Offering
Memorandum, those results or developments may not be indicative of results or developments in subsequent periods.
Any forward-looking statements that we make in this Offering Memorandum speak only as of the date 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.
By their nature, forward-looking statements involve risks and uncertainties because they relate to events and
depend on circumstances that may or may not occur in the future and may not be within our control. We believe that
