The NPD is presenting a new resource report for exploration
Follow the presentation of the report live on npd.no on Tuesday, 27 October, at 10:00.
Among other things, the report presents an up-to-date estimate for undiscovered resources on the Norwegian shelf and an analysis of the profitability of exploration.
Vast undiscovered resources
The report e.g. concludes that there are vast undiscovered resources in all ocean areas, and that new technology, data sharing and big data analysis could contribute to more discoveries.
The Norwegian shelf is well-positioned for a low-carbon future with a low carbon footprint from production, good storage capacity for CO2 (CCS) and the possibility of seabed minerals becoming a profitable new industry.
The Ministry of Petroleum and Energy has announced a temporary appointment, naming Torgeir Stordal (60) as Director General of the NPD from 30 June and until a new Director General of the NPD is hired.
