The company named Det Norske Oljeselskap (now DNO International) was founded in 1971. An oil company named Pertra was created when the oil exploration and production division of Petroleum Geo-Services was demerged in 2001.

In 2009, a Norwegian oil company Aker Exploration merged with Det Norske Oljeselskap.
On May 21, 2013, the company announced it had produced its first oil as an operator from the Jette field in the Norwegian sector of the North Sea.
In 2014, Det Norske Oljeselskap bought Marathon Oil's Norwegian daughter company Marathon Oil Norway.
In 2016, Det Norske Oljeselskap and BP's subsidiary BP Norge merged. The name of the company was changed into Aker BP ASA.
