[08.05.14] - 1st quarter 2014:Costs must be halved for wells and the annual number doubledThe State’s Direct Financial Interest (SDFI) on the Norwegian continental shelf (NCS) yielded a net cash flow of NOK 38.9 billion for the first quarter of 2014, up NOK 1.6 billion from the same period of last year. Chief executive, Grethe K. Moen, wants to double the number of wells and halve their cost in order to realise the great value potential of the SDFI portfolio. To achieve this, she will attack creeping inefficiency through simplification, technology for cost efficiency and a cultural shift from "fault-free" to "efficient".

[27.02.14] - SDFI 2013:Major investments slow production decline, cost rises threaten projectsCash flow from the government's own oil and gas on the Norwegian continental shelf was NOK 124.8 billion in 2013, compared with NOK 146.9 bn the year before. Capital spending went up 34 per cent to NOK 34.4 bn. The long lasting decline of oil production shows sign of flattening out. Grethe K Moen, chief executive of Petoro said sharp rise in investment is part of the reason for the cash flow reduction in 2013, but added that investment will yield production and income over time. Moen is, however, concerned that a combination of high investment, high cost and stable prices could lead to postponement of projects in mature fields as well as new developments offshore Norway.
