INNOVATION is the theme for ONS 2018

U.S. Companies are world renown for innovation and the United States is committed to its international trade partnerships. America brings the best technology and innovation to the table, and we have the most-skilled, professional workforce to do the job. The Norwegian government emphasizes that the oil industry needs to strive to make their exploration activities as efficient and cost-effective. America has the answer.

Investment commitments for projects like the Johan Sverdrup field in the North Sea will eventually represent about 25 percent of total Norwegian production and point to clear signs of growth for the petroleum industry.

Norway is THE major European player on the Continental shelf
Apart from Russia, Norway is the top oil and natural gas supplier for the European economy, designating nearly all of its offshore production to the export market. The government reported preliminary figures for November, the last full month for which it published data, at 1.46 million barrels of oil, 316,000 barrels of natural gas liquid and 31,000 barrels of condensate, an ultra-light oil.

Norwegian energy major Statoil, which is co-owned by the government, said an estimated $1 billion in contracts will be awarded now that a plan for enhancing the 200 million-barrel Snorre field in the North Sea is on the table. The government estimated the total investment for the Snorre enhancement at $2.3 billion.
