New edition of Norwegian Continental Shelf

14/01/2019 In an interview, Kristin Færøvik, chair of the board in the industry organisation Norwegian Oil and gas, emphasises the importance of the authorities ensuring that we also have stable framework conditions on the Norwegian Shelf in the future. And she urges companies to continue to explore for oil and gas.

Professor of petroleum economics, Petter Osmundsen, discusses whether the Norwegian petroleum industry is particularly exposed to climate risk?

Oil commentator Bjørn Vidar Lerøen advocates reinforcing the gas strategy to ensure that Norway retains its strong position as gas supplier to Europe.

This edition also offers a meeting with a geologist who is finding opportunities for capturing and storing CO2. And we also bring you the story of how reserves on Alvheim have more than doubled.
