En drivkraft på norsk sokkel
The Norwegian State has substantial holdings in several oil and gas fields, pipelines and land facilities linked to the Norwegian continental shelf through the State’s Direct Financial Interest (SDFI). Petoro AS manages these interests. The Company’s most important task is to ensure maximum value and achieve the highest possible income to the State from SDFI. The entire cash flow from SDFI is transferred to the Government Pension Fund Global (the Petroleum Fund).

The Norwegian continental shelf remains strong. Stable production contributed to Petoro’s transfer of 59 billion kroner to the Norwegian Government Pension Fund Global (the Norwegian Oil Fund) in the first six months of 2019, three billion more than in the first half of 2018. Petoro’s revenues account for a vital share of the State’s income from the oil and gas industry. “It is very gratifying to note that revenues from the State’s portfolio remain high,” says Grethe Moen, President and CEO of Petoro. “This illustrates that our producing fields are profitable even in a market with fluctuating oil and gas prices.”
