(1) Due to changes in the salary-band structure implemented by Statoil in 2009, equivalent statistics are unavailable for 2008 and 2007. 

(2) Statoil's board of directors consists of members elected by shareholders and employees, none of whom are executive officers of the company. The directors elected by Statoil's employees would not be considered "independent", as defined under NYSE Rule 303A.02, but are independent for the purposes of Rule 10A-3(b)(1) of the US securities Exchange Act of 1934, which applies to members of the company's audit committee. Statoil's board of directors has determined that, in its judgement, all of the shareholder-elected directors are independent.
