With the current production plans, more than half of the proven oil resources on Norwegian continental shelf is being left behind in the subsurface.

The Norwegian Petroleum Directorate’s task is to contribute to improved recovery from producing fields. Even just a few percentage points of improved recovery represent substantial values for society.

The recovery factor for oil is a target for how great a proportion of the oil can be recovered.
