Oil, Gas & Offshore

A shift from oil and gas to energy

The oil & gas industry remains an important contributor to the Norwegian economy. The industry is a core component of the investment universe in Norway for both domestic and international investors. The sector extends from leading global upstream companies 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.
