You can now register for “Course for the industry" (Kurs for næringen) which will be held on 14 November in our offices in Stavanger. The registration deadline is 8 November.
The course provides an introduction to the Norwegian Petroleum Directorate’s roles and tasks, and how our work affects your working day in the oil and gas industry.
This is a popular course that has received good feedback from the participants in the three previous courses.
Torhild S. Nilsen, the NPD’s assistant director Framework and finances, explains why we hold the course:
“It’s important to have a good dialogue between the authorities and the industry players on petroleum resource management. In this course, you will learn about the petroleum regulations and the contact licensees must have with the authorities at various milestones. The course also provides insight into our tasks, our role as a fact resource and technical adviser to the Ministry of Petroleum and Energy".
There will be a video link to the NPD’s offices in Harstad.

There are vast proven gas resources on the Norwegian shelf which are currently without development plans. Much of this gas is located in tight reservoirs – which makes it difficult to produce.
The Norwegian Petroleum Directorate (NPD) has conducted a mapping of gas resources that, for various reasons, have yet to be developed. Several of these discoveries could be produced in a manner that is profitable from a socio-economic perspective.
