* Does not exist as an individual company any more
** Has been prequalified as operator

a) New evaluation due to sales of large portion of portfolio to Lundin
b) New company with same name started by key personell
c) If operator status is given, the company is omitted from licensee listing

As can be seen from the list of pre-qualified players, there is substantial diversity both as regards nationality, size and experience.

This is in line with the authorities' objectives of increasing competition on the Norwegian continental shelf.
