Delivering major capital projects

Maersk Oil has a proven track record for delivering complex multi-phase projects to a high standard and in a value-preserving, safe and reliable way. The four projects profiled here represent our largest capital investments which are in execution, early pilot or advanced planning stages today. Our approach is led by selecting development options which will yield the full extent of the field’s potential.
