OKEA is a fast-growing oil producer operating on the NCS aiming to bring undeveloped discoveries with less than 100 million boe in reserves into production. We are a trusted partner on a local, regional and national level with a clear ambition to create value for owners, employees and society as a whole.

OKEA consists of a strong management team coupled with a tier-one operator organization ensuring operational excellence.

Our head office is based in Trondheim and includes most of our management functions. Our offshore operational center for existing and future OKEA-operated fields is based in Kristiansund.

We believe that developing and optimizing smaller fields will become increasingly important to the Norwegian oil and gas industry and we are certain that OKEA is strategically positioned to take a large part of this growing market.
