If you were out in a boat on the west coast of Norway this summer, you’d have witnessed a unique spectacle: five gigantic 250-meter-high Hywind turbines sailing out to sea. A new generation. Built by Statoil. So, why is an oil and gas company spearheading the floating wind power revolution?

The best ideas often happen when you least expect them—and when you’re not at the office. Two becalmed sailors started to doodle on the back of a napkin, and the rest is history. We went sailing with the boffins behind Hywind to find out how they came up with the idea.

In this article for Norwegian national daily Aftenposten, Statoil CEO Eldar Sætre explains how the company is putting its weight behind the Paris Agreement and seizing the opportunities presented by changes in global energy markets. “We must be part of the response to the challenges facing the world,” he says.

This year marks ten years since the merger between Statoil ASA and Norsk Hydro’s oil and gas operations. We have taken a brief look back at the merger—the lead-up and reasons for it—and where Statoil stands today.
