Resource reports


Since 1997, we have published a resource report every other year. The reports contain a status of exploration and the resource on the Norwegian continental shelf as well as selected topics such as undiscovered resources, increased production and efficient operations.

Resource report 2019 – Fields and discovery

Even after more than 50 years, the Norwegian shelf still holds vast opportunities. More than half of the estimated remaining resources on the Norwegian shelf have already been discovered. 85 per cent are located in the fields and 15 per cent are located in discoveries that are being considered for development.

Resource report 2018 – Exploration

The 2018 Resource Report for Exploration shows that large remaining resources on the Norwegian continental shelf continue to offer great opportunities on the Norwegian shelf, both in mature and less explored areas.

Resource report 2017 – Fields and discovery

The significant remaining resources in discoveries and fields make it possible to create values for the Norwegian society for many decades into the future, according to the NPD’s new report Values for the future.
