Restructuring well under way, now we need to get more out of mature fields

[05.05.2015] - Press release, first quarter 2015

“We see clearly that the oil industry is taking the challenges seriously,” says CEO Grethe Moen in connection with the presentation of Petoro’s results for the first quarter of 2015. “Costs for fields in production were cut by seven per cent in the first quarter. Real efficiency improvements to achieve a substantially lower level of costs will call for hard work over a long time to come and is a necessary correction. At the same time, it’s important that new business opportunities are brought forward. Priorities must be discussed in every licence.”

Petoro chief executive Grethe Moen notes that fewer new developments mean income from the SDFI will be more dependent than ever on the mature fields over the next few years.
