The oil & gas industry remains an important contributor to the Norwegian economy, and is a core component of the investment universe in Norway for both domestic and international investors. The sector extends from leading global upstream companies like Statoil through smaller, independent E&P operators to a multitude of service and equipment companies.
The Norwegian oil & gas upstream sector and service and equipment industry have grown to become one of the leading global petroleum clusters, in particular within offshore deep water and harsh environment exploration and production technology. The Oslo Stock Exchange is the second largest energy company exchange in the world, and Norwegian marketplaces have become venues of choice for issuers and investors globally, facilitating capital raising for both E&P operators and service and equipment providers. Since its inception Arctic Securities has gained a leading position within corporate finance advisory services for upstream and oil services companies in Norway, and has developed a track record of M&A and capital raising. Arctic Securities maintains a dedicated team of specialists with experience from the oil & oil services industry, as well as energy investment banking.
