To solve the puzzle of the tight fields in the Danish North
Sea, its home for 50 years, Maersk Oil developed a suite of
innovative tools and techniques, which it then adapted to the
giant but complex Al Shaheen field, offshore of Qatar. Maersk
Oil now produces 85% of Denmark’s oil and gas and over a
third of Qatar’s oil output.
These experiences generated a spirit of creative problem
solving and led to an innovative deployment of technology,
which has helped Maersk Oil to spread its wings across the
globe. In the past ten years, Maersk Oil has established a
presence in seven new countries, and it now has a broad
portfolio that stretches across a wide variety of geological,
geographical and operational conditions.
Maersk Oil has experience in geological environments such as
chalk and shelf carbonates, fluvio-deltaic and deepwater clastics,
and presalt. Its operates in conditions ranging from the harsh
Arctic climate and terrain of Greenland to the arid steppe of
Kazakhstan. And the company is developing expertise in difficult
operating conditions such as deepwaters, and High Pressure, High
