Here you can view the most central regulations that apply to resource management in the petroleum activities under the jurisdiction of the Ministry of Petroleum and Energy and the Norwegian Petroleum Directorate. The regulations are divided between Acts, Royal Decrees and NPD Regulations.

You can search for other relevant regulations for the petroleum activities on the websites of the respective authorities, or on Lovdata (Norwegian laws in English).

The Norwegian Petroleum Directorate has stipulated regulations relating to resource management in the petroleum activities (the Resource Management Regulations) and regulations relating to measurement of petroleum for fiscal purposes and for calculation of CO2 tax (the Measurement Regulations).

These regulations have been stipulated in accordance with the Petroleum Act and the CO2 Tax Act, and function as a supplement to the provisions of these two acts, as well as the regulations relating to the Petroleum Act.
