How to find us in Norway

Norway is our home base and our head office is in Stavanger. Corporate functions are located in Oslo and Stavanger. We are the largest operator on the Norwegian continental shelf and partner in a large number of oil and gas fields. Here are our main offices in Norway.

Set for another 40 years in Norway

We see a bright future for our home territory.

After 40 years of oil and gas operations in Norway we have a lot to be proud of—but we’re still only halfway! Although our industry is experiencing difficult times, our portfolio of projects is larger today than it's ever been. We have high hopes for the NCS, and we're planning for major activity for decades to come. We believe that it will be fully possible to maintain profitable and sustainable production here for another 40 years.

An international energy player

Statoil is an active player in many of the most important oil and gas provinces in the world, and our international developments are expected to account for most of our future production growth. Much of the expertise and technology we take with us abroad has been shaped in the challenging environment of the Norwegian contintental shelf.
