Ministry of Petroleum and Energy
In cooperation with the Norwegian Petroleum Directorate, The Ministry of Petroleum and Energy has published a new edition of its annual book on the Norwegian petroleum sector, Facts 2014. The publication gives a comprehensive overview of the petroleum activity on the Norwegian continental shelf (NCS).
Norwegian gas accounts for about a quarter of the gas consumption in the EU. New projections show that Norway will be able to supply flexible and reliable gas for many decades, gas that offers an opportunity for affordable and efficient emission cuts in Europe. However, clear market signals from the EU are important when future gas export solutions from our High North shall be decided.
Today the Norwegian Ministry of Petroleum and Energy is awarding 12 new licenses in 47 blocks on the Norwegian Continental Shelf. Nine of the licenses are located in the Barents Sea, while three are located in the Norwegian Sea.
