Turning marginal and challenging fields into commercial successes has been the cornerstone of Maersk Oil’s business since 1962. Maersk Oil focuses on pioneering technologies and harnessing talent to continue to operate safely and successfully, creating value for partners and host governments.


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 Temperature.

Maersk Oil is a fully-owned subsidiary of the global conglomerate, the A.P. Moller - Maersk Group.

The Danish company is registered as Mærsk Olie og Gas A/S with company no. 22757318.
