After 45 years of petroleum production on
the Norwegian Continental Shelf, we have
produced almost half of our resources –
including the estimates of undiscovered
This means there is a foundation for petroleum production in Norway for decades to come.
The future holds topics such as price, cost and the industry´s ability and willingness to invest for the long term.
As of today, there are 81 fields in production on the Norwegian Shelf. We have taken a closer look at 26 of the older fields. According to the original plans, only five should still be operating. Today 24 of them are still running – only one was shut down according to plan.
One important reason is the initiatives to increase production in operating fields. Another is the fact that new discoveries are being linked to existing infrastructures.
And there are still huge resources left behind in the fields, both resources already approved for production – and resources that can be extracted with the help of projects aimed at increasing the production.
There are still plans being made for
developments on the Continental Shelf.
The work on the Johan Sverdrup field in
the North Sea, one of the biggest ever,
has already started. And hopefully the
development of the Johan Castberg field in
the Barents Sea will be approved in 2017.
It is of course a challenge that future developments of the approximately 90 discoveries registered in our data base are all small, less than 60 million barrels. However, many of them can be developed profitably by linking them to existing infrastructures.
So far in 2016, the government has received five plans for development and production. All five are linked to existing infrastructures.
The plans show that the companies have found profitable solutions even in these challenging times. Longer lifespans for existing infrastructures also mean that future discoveries can be linked and become profitable, even if they are small.
The need to reduce cost in the industry
has been a hot topic the last three or four
We have taken a closer look at eight projects in the planning stages. The investment estimates for these projects have, according to the operators, decreased from NOK 270 to NOK 150 billion without affecting extractable resources.
On the one hand, OD applauds the cost reductions because it proves that increasing efficiency and cutting costs work. On the other hand, we are worried that shortsighted savings will be at the expense of long term goals of increased production and new developments.
Next to oil and gas, the petroleum industry
is Norway´s biggest export industry. It is
important to develop new technology - but
it is equally important to use technology
It is when technology is utilized it creates value!
We see that many companies have had to
downsize during the last couple of years.
It is essential that companies do not let go of all their most competent employees. Skilled professionals will help maintain the capacity for innovation and the ability to find smart solutions for the future.
We also have to ensure that future generations see that the industry contributes great value to society, and that it can offer exciting jobs for those with ambitions.
But this requires that the industry does what it takes to have a license to operate in the future. Emissions must be reduced, and the industry must ensure a high standard of security.
The Norwegian Petroleum Directorate (NPD) plays a key role in petroleum resource management, and is an advisory body to the Ministry of Petroleum and Energy (MPE).
The Norwegian Petroleum Directorate (NPD) exercises authority related to exploration for and production of petroleum deposits on the Norwegian Continental Shelf. This includes statutory powers and to making decisions based on the rules and regulations governing the petroleum activities.
The paramount objective of the NPD is to contribute to creating the largest possible value for society from oil and gas activities by means of prudent resource management, taking account of health, safety, emergency preparedness and the natural environment, including the climate.In order to make the most efficient contribution to this, the NPD must perform four functions:
The NPD sets frameworks, stipulates regulations and makes decisions in areas where it has been delegated authority. The directorate is also responsible for conducting metering audits and collecting fees from the petroleum industry. In addition, the NPD contributes administrative competence, mapping of resources and petroleum data administration for the development aid programme “Oil for Development”.
The NHO - Confederation of Norwegian Enterprise - is the main business and employers organization in Norway with a current membership of 25,000 companies ranging from small family-owned businesses to multinational enterprises. A half million people work in those companies. As a member in NHO you will have access to a unique network and influence decision making. NHO offers amongst other special deals for members in legal aid, counselling, pension scheme, statistics and analysis.
In addition to the central organization
in Oslo, which has cross sectoral
responsibility for members’ interests,
members also belong to one of 20
nationwide sectoral federations and one
of 15 regional associations. The sectoral
federations represent branch-related
interests while the regional associations
offer a local point of contact between
companies and authorities.
NHO policies and priorities are decided by an executive council made up of 46 elected representatives from member companies. A ten member NHO Board chaired by the President makes decisions on policy issues with delegated authority from the executive council. A Director General is responsible for day-to-day operations in the administration.
NHO´s mission is to work in the best
interests of their member companies in a
way that also benefits society. Profitable
companies create jobs and economic
growth and contribute to the financing of
the public sector and the welfare.

Norway is widely recognized for its strong and highly efficient capital market. Oslo Børs is high on the agenda when international energy companies consider going public.
Norway has unique clusters in shipping,
seafood and not least within a widely
diversified energy sector, with E&P, oil
service and offshore & subsea activities
as core elements. On Oslo Børs, these
sectors are represented by world-class
companies, international investors,
specialized research analysts, advisors,
banks and law firms.
– Combined, Oslo can support any needs companies may have for a well-functioning capital market, says Øivind Amundsen, Executive Vice President of Primary Market and Legal Affairs at Oslo Børs.
The Oslo Børs marketplaces enjoy a unique position for companies in the energy sector. Norway is one of the world’s largest exporters of both oil and gas, and companies in the energy sector turn to the Norwegian market to raise capital, obtain liquidity for their shares and benefit from a range of world-leading investment research coverage available in Oslo.
Oslo Børs has a history of almost 200
years as a fully regulated exchange and
offers access to international investors,
investment banks and brokerage firms, a
highly competent research community, as
well as efficient trading and reliable market
The Oslo stock market is the largest in Europe for energy companies in the oil service sector, and it is the preferred listing venue for numerous world-class oil & gas and offshore companies.
The fall in North Sea output, combined
with more oil and gas finds and
production in Northern Norway, will
propel the Barents Sea and Northern
Norwegian Sea regions to become the
largest contributor to Norway’s petroleum
production by the end of 2030. According
to the Rystad Energy report, “Petro
Foresight 2030”, presented this February
in Oslo, output here will supersede that of
the North Sea and Southern Norwegian
Sea fields combined within the next few
The Norwegian energy consultant forecasts the number of petroleum field projects in the Norwegian North Sea and Barents Sea and land terminals in Finnmark could rise from three to nine by 2040, spurring NOK 70 billion in annual investments and operating costs from 2020. Among the most promising are potential modification and satellite projects at petroleum fields Aasta Hansteen, Norne, Skarv, Goliat, and Snøhvit, new field developments at Johan Castberg, Wisting, and Barents Sea South East, an oil terminal at Veidnes, and an oil spill base either in Lofoten or Vesterålen.
Italy’s Eni recently started production at
Goliat, Norway’s first oil field development
in the Barents Sea and the world’s
northernmost offshore field. After
two years of delays and 50% in cost
increases, the floating production storage
and offloading (FPSO) unit started oil
production at Goliat this March. The field
is expected to produce 100,000 barrels
Fields in the North have been a challenge to develop partly because of the high costs associated with developing in the Arctic combined with low oil prices. Now there is an encouraging trend towards lower break-even prices on projects, with an average of 16% reduction since December 2014, according to Rystad. OMV’s Wisting oil field development, for example -- which is even farther north than Goliat -- has dropped 35% to a breakeven of $67. Statoil’s giant, Johan Castberg development in the Barents Sea has also fallen by about a third to $45.
“The Barents Sea is as competitive as the rest of the (Norwegian Continental) shelf,” said Kjell Gjæver, Petro Arctic director, at the packed seminar hosted by Rystad on northern Norway oil activities. The Norwegian organization, along with Pro Barents, Innovation Park North, Innovation Park Bodø and Innovation Norway, produced the Petro Foresight 2030 report based on Rystad’s analysis.
Norway’s Statoil recently revealed that
it had been able to revive development
plans for Johan Castberg based on a
FPSO solution. Statoil chief executive
Eldar Sætre announced at the Norwegian
Petroleum Society’s annual oil conference
in Sandefjord last January that it had cut
project costs in half by NOK 50-60 billion.
The oil field development was previously
considered a cost challenge with the oil
price sinking to below $30 per barrel and a
possible need for a land-based terminal.
“We have had a huge cost reduction by reducing equipment and complexity,” said Kristian Aas, Statoil hull leader Johan Castberg floater, at INTSOK Floating Production Conference 2016 in Oslo last March.
Partners in the Johan Castberg development originally thought the field contained about one billion barrels. But after a drilling campaign showed only half of those reserves, roughly 450-650 million barrels, the license partners opted to drop a semi-submersible platform solution with an accompanying land terminal in favor of a less expensive FPSO concept for possible start-up in 2022.
The decision has paid off. According to Aas, the switch to a FPSO reduced the cost of the project by 24%. In addition, a 16% savings on the floater itself was achieved by removing some topside equipment, using less generators and shortening the FPSO, and shaved a further 19% off by simplifying the pipeline and reducing the number of subsea structures.
“This has led to a reduction in the number of wells and path optimization. It is a simpler subsea solution,” said Aas.
The Petro Foresight 2030 report believes
part of the key to strengthening the future
competitiveness of the Barents Sea will be
new drilling technology. There are several
technological areas that are particularly
demanding when drilling and producing
in low pressure and low temperature
reservoirs. These include horizontal
drilling, artificial lift, water injection and
subsea systems over spread out wells.
One example is the Sandnes-based Fishbones, which has developed a stimulation system that can be used to increase productivity. It uses small diameter laterals that jet out from the wellbore – hence the name Fishbones – that connect the well to the reservoir with up to 300 laterals and allows stimulation of several zones with different pressure regimes.
The technology has been used successfully in the US on tight limestone formations and was implemented for the first time on the Norwegian Continental Shelf last year on Statoil’s Smørbukk South Extension. By drilling 150 “fishbones” each 10-12 meters in length from the main well at Smørbukk South, Statoil was able to tap a reservoir with low permeability previously regarded as unfeasible.
Another technology that has potential for Norway’s Northern areas is NeoDrill’s Conductor Anchor Node (CAN) technology. The CAN-ductor (CAN with integrated conductor) enables the operator to kick-off much shallower than possible with a conventional conductor, entering the reservoir horizontally. This offers substantial cost savings as the conductor is installed prior to rig arrival, cutting 3-4 days off the rig plan.
NeoDrill’s technological solution was recently used to drill Wisting Central II, the first horizontal appraisal well in the Barents Sea and a new drilling record as the shallowest horizontal offshore well ever drilled from a floating drilling facility, according to operator OMV. NeoDrill enabled the well to be drilled horizontally at only 250 meters below the seabed using the CAN-ductor, which provided a stable foundation for the well and BOP (blow out preventer) stack.
The Islamic Republic of Iran signed a
historic agreement last year with the P5+1
nations (China, France, Germany, Russia,
the UK, and the US) and the EU on Iran’s
nuclear program that lifts sanctions for
The deal will allow for development of the world’s second largest holder of hydrocarbon reserves and one of the last major markets in the coming decades for new foreign oil deals. Iran will need $180 billion in investments over the next five years to reach its planned increase of production from 3.2 million barrels per day to 5 million by 2020, according to Euro Iran Business Consultants, based in Sandnes, Norway.
Firouz Ardeshiran, chairman at Iranian
energy consultancy Namvaran P&T,
expects there could be 15 offshore fields
developed and over 400 wells drilled
over the next few years. To achieve
this, Iran will need foreigners willing to
take the risk and provide research and
development, technology, foreign finance,
and engineering, procurement and
construction project management.
“The expectation is that Iran is getting safer every day,” said Ardeshiran at DLA Piper’s conference “Iran Opportunities and Risks Post Sanctions,” arranged in Oslo last March in collaboration with Norwegian international oil and gas network-based organization INTSOK.
INTSOK is watching the situation closely. It recently coordinated a visit at the Iranian Oil Fair in Tehran last May – the first post sanction fair -- to meet with stakeholders, the National Iranian Oil Company, subsidiaries and private organizations. According to Werner Karlsson, INTSOK regional director Europe and Middle East, there has never been greater interest among its members for a new market as there is for Iran now.
“There is a Klondike feeling,” he said in an interview in Oslo after the Iranian Oil Show. “It is difficult times for the oil industry and there is a technological fit with Iran,” pointing to Caspian Sea deep water projects, improved oil recovery on old fields, environment and safety, and gas developments.
However, there are concerns about
re-entering Iran because of the history
of sanctions and current sanctions in
dealings with US companies. There are
also worries over regulations, which
require that 51% of all contracts have
Iranian interests represented. Local
content rules have been a “murky area
in emerging markets for corruption,” said
Joachim Naheem, program director at
the International Law and Policy Institute
(ILPI) at the DLA Piper conference.
Karlsson foresees that one of the biggest challenges for the moment is ensuring that international bank guarantees transferring of money from Iran. A recent breakthrough was the signing of a memorandum of understanding between Export Credit Norway and the Norwegian Exports Credit Guarantee Agency and their Iranian counterparts -- the Export Guarantee Fund of Iran and the Organization for Investment Economical & Technical Assistance of Iran -- that will facilitate financial cooperation between the two countries.
“Export financing makes it easier for Norwegian exporters to compete for contracts in Iran, as it provides a sales argument when marketing products and services abroad,” said Wenche Nistad, GIEK chief executive, regarding the signing of the agreement in Tehran last August. “Several other countries have already signed similar agreements, allowing Norwegian exporters to compete on equal terms.”
The next question is how soon the market can open for Western contracts. China, India, Korea and Russia filled the gap after European companies left the country due to sanctions. Much will depend on foreign oil companies finally signing the new Iran Petroleum Contracts, which have been delayed several times.
These concerns have not kept Norwegian firms from returning to Iran. Oil service
company Aker Solutions signed a
memorandum of understanding this
March with Iran’s Research Institute of
Petroleum Industry to cooperate on oil
industry research. Norwegian company,
Hemla Vantage, signed an agreement the
same month with the Iranian IIC (Iranian
Investment Company) through its Omanbased
sister company Middle East New
Energy to expand their trading operations
of LNG, LPG and petrochemical
“Hemla and IIC are committed to their cooperation and are proud to be in the first in line to restart trading activities between their two countries,” said Hemla in a statement. “Norway and Iran have a long history of successful collaboration. Norway’s Statoil was involved in a project to develop Iran’s South Pars Phases 6, 7 and 8, which were completed in 2008. Another company, Norsk Hydro (now Statoil), was involved in the exploration of Anaran block in Western Iran.” Hemla has already entered Iran through a joint venture with Kharg Petrochemical Company, for the capture of flare gas and conversion to LNG and LPG at Kharg Island. It also has a separate joint venture with the Tamin Petroleum & Petrochemical Investment Company.
Another Norwegian company keen to explore new opportunities is a spin-off of Rolls- Royce called Dwellop that has developed a novel well intervention system. The Stavanger-based company recently signed an agreement with Abu Dhabi-based Gulf Marine Services (GMS) on its cantilever well intervention and work over unit system and is building one for GMS. The partnership will open up for new markets, such as Iran, where Dwellop recently received approval by two Iranian oil companies.
“We travelled to Iran one year before the sanctions were lifted,” said Helge Hustoft, Dwellop chief executive. “The national oil companies in Iran are interested in our solutions.”
The COP21 Climate Pledge Agreement
by nearly 200 countries to limit global
warming to 2° Celsius represents a
“crossroads” in global climate change,
according to Norwegian oil company
Statoil. The increase in global demand
for energy needs to be met by renewable
energy. At the same time, the global
economy will need fossil energy sources
for a long time.
The petroleum industry now needs to deal with the transition to the new and challenging low margin world, the transition to a more sustainable global economy and also a transition in leadership mindsets to cope with this new complexity, said John Knight, ONS conference committee chairman and Statoil executive vice-president of global strategy and business development, in his opening address at ONS 2016.
As part of that transition, the Norwegian
Oil and Gas Association announced a
climate roadmap in August in collaboration
with the petroleum and maritime
industries. The goal is to reduce CO2
emissions to 2.5 million tons on the
Norwegian Continental Shelf (NCS) by
2030 compared to 2020.
In addition, oil companies, suppliers and ship owners are expected to help reduce emissions from the maritime sector. They pledge that by 2030 maritime operations on the NCS will be conducted with low or zero emission technology in the offshore fleet. This comes on top of the maritime sector’s current ambitions to reduce 2.5 million tons of CO2 equivalents.
“The climate agreement in Paris has led to far higher expectations for reductions in carbon emissions and a shift toward a more climate-friendly direction for the oil and gas industry,” said Sturla Henriksen, Norwegian Shipowners Association’s (NSA) president. “The maritime industry can contribute with new technology, energy efficiency and increased transport of goods by sea.”
The NSA worked with the Norwegian
Oil and Gas Association, Federation
of Norwegian Industries, Norwegian
Confederation of Trade Unions,
and Industry Energy on forming the
roadmap under their collaboration arena
Among the report’s key recommendations for the Norwegian government are; granting NOK 1 billion in new funding for research and development of lowemission technology over a ten-year period, establishing a full-scale carbon capture storage chain in Norway, and working with European players toward the possibility of using the NCS as a storage location for big emissions sources in Europe through ship-borne CO2 transport.
For Norwegian companies, the report recommends studying the use of gas turbines and power from shore in connection with new oil installations, pursuing other energy options such as wind power, hybrid solutions and fuel cells, and identifying barriers to using CO2 for improved recovery to help identify necessary policy changes for realizing a possible pilot project.
“This is a historic climate goal for the oil industry and marks a change in pace in climate work,” said Karl Eirik Schjøtt-Pedersen, Norwegian Oil and Gas Association president. “Norway will become the first oil country in the world to implement emission cuts beyond the already ambitious targets set by the authorities in the industry.”
Statoil, the largest operator on the NCS,
will account for 2 million tons of the 2.5
million in planned CO2 reductions by
2030. The company has previously set
a goal of cutting NCS emissions by 1.2
million tons by 2020 compared with 2008.
One of the ways to achieve this is through improved oil recovery (IOR). As part of the climate roadmap towards 2050, the KonKraft report recommends that the oil industry increases its average recovery rate to at least 60%. The current average on the NCS is about 46% which is higher than the global average.
One example is the Statoil operated Åsgard license, which received the Statoil’s new Energy Venture Fund has invested in United Wind © United Wind Norwegian Petroleum Directorate 2016 IOR award during ONS for their subsea wet gas compressor. The concept was first tested more than 20 years ago on subsea installations for the Draugen, Troll, Tordis and Tyrihans fields. In 2015, the system came on-stream at Åsgard in the Norwegian Sea as the first of its kind in the world.
“The technology will improve recovery by 306 million barrels of oil equivalents and increase the recovery factor to more than 75%, an impressive figure,” said Bente Nyland, NPD director general, highlighting the 69% rate on the Mikkel field and 84% on Midgard.
The other obvious way to adapt to the
new climate reality is to invest more in
renewables. Statoil signed a deal this
September to become operator of the UK
offshore wind project Sheringham Shoal,
while increasing its stake in Dogger Bank.
It recently entered Germany through a joint
venture with E.ON at the Arkona wind farm
and made the final investment decision to
build the world’s first floating wind farm at
the Hywind pilot park offshore Scotland,
where it will test its new battery storage
Statoil also recently started a new Energy Venture Fund that will invest up to $200 million over the next seven years in renewables. Its first project was a $3 million investment in United Winds this March. The New York-based company offers onshore leasing options to farmers that want to install a land turbine on their property.
The springboard for Statoil’s new Energy Venture Fund was its Technology Invest Fund, which has invested $135 million in oil and gas start-ups since 2000. The new fund will look at everything from Statoil’s current renewable portfolio to offshore wind projects to new “growth legs” in solar and onshore wind and even high impact technology that could disrupt energy markets.
“We have a mandate to step outside the traditional investment segment,” said Gareth Burns, Statoil Energy Ventures managing director. “If the strategy fits, and there is a potential for profitable return, we will be able to invest in it.”
The Norwegian offshore industry has
pledged to reduce 2.5 million tons of
CO2 on the Norwegian Continental Shelf
(NCS) by 2030 compared to 2020 as part
of its efforts to help the country meets
its commitments under the Paris climate
That’s a significant step forward given the size of its emissions. The NCS currently accounts for one third of all CO2 output. Gas turbines on offshore platforms make up 90% of that load.
But what if you could substitute fuel cells with similar technology like those already used in cars and hybrid vessels to power offshore platforms? And what if you furthermore captured the carbon and stored it under the seabed?
That is the premise behind the two
projects by CMR Prototech in Bergen.
The first is the Research Council of
Norway’s Petromaks 2 project, with
Norwegian oil company Statoil and
Norske Shell, called Clean Highly Efficient
Offshore Power (CHEOP). Researchers
are developing a compact Solid Oxide
Fuel Cell system to convert chemical
energy directly into electricity using local
natural gas resources from oil reservoirs
as fuel. If successful, this would mark the
first time fuel cells are used on offshore
“Fuel cells in cars are based on Proton Exchange Membranes using pure hydrogen as fuel,” said Ivar Wærnhus, CMR Prototech senior researcher. “At the platform, it runs on natural gas. Then you need another fuel cell technology.”
CMR Prototech’s fuel cell system works by replacing natural gas turbines that are normally used to power the platform. With fuel efficiencies of up to 60%, the fuel consumption and CO2 emissions could be reduced up to 50%. That would make it cheaper to operate given that there are no turbines and thus easier to maintain.
The fuel cell stack would be also less expensive than pulling electric cables from land to power the platforms. There has been a recent push to use hydropower from onshore to power oil and gas platforms, like at the Martin Linge field. However, it can be more cost-effective and environmentally friendly to produce the electricity on-site on the offshore platform, said Crina Ilea, CMR Prototech senior researcher.
“The idea started when Statoil was thinking about using electrical cables from land,” said Ilea. “This is why we started the project. These cables will transfer the electricity to the oil platforms produced on land by hydropower. But the electricity is redrawn from the EU market. The EU then has to cover the electricity shortfall, and not all of them are renewable sources.”
Another environmental aspect of the
CHEOP project is a separate, but related
project by Norwegian state enterprise
Gassnova called CHEOP-CC, with Statoil
and Norske Shell. Led by Ilea, CHEOP-CC
will look at the possibility to capture up to
90% of all CO2 emissions using fuel cells.
Regular carbon capture technology entails a combination whereby the CO2 is separated from the nitrogen-rich exhaust. That requires a large carbon capture plant onshore. With fuel cells, oxygen membranes convert the fuel so that there is only an exhaust of CO2 and water. The captured CO2 can then be used to improve the oil recovery process and later stored into the reservoirs under the seabed.
“When you have the fuel cell installed on site, you can recover more or less all CO2,” said Wærnhus.
Norway is anxious to get a national program in place to capture CO2 emissions. The government has allocated NOK 360 million in its 2017 national budget toward creating of a full-scale carbon capture and storage (CCS) chain by 2022 based on further detailed studies of three competing solutions: Norcem’s cement factory at Brevik, Yara’s fertilizer plant at Porsgrunn, and the Klemtsrud Waste Terminal in Oslo.
“It’s not just Norway, but also global benefits if exported,” said Karl Eirik Schjøtt-Pedersen, Norwegian Oil and Gas Association director general, at DNV GL Technology Day this September in Høvik, Norway. “We believe there will be a need in the energy sector and industry. Ten to 15 years ago newspapers wrote solar power couldn’t compete without subsidies. Now it is viable. The same logic applies to CCS.”
As part of the CCS chain, the captured CO2 will be transported by ship to a North Sea aquifer. Statoil has picked a landbased solution to the Smeaheia area, which will be used to take 1 million tons of C02 via a new pipeline from a land terminal at or near Kollsnes. Smeaheia is located in the same geological formation as the Troll field. The NCS is estimated to hold one third of the CO2 storage capacity in Europe, followed by the UK, according to the environmental organization “Bellona”.
Both CMR Prototech’s projects CHEOP
and CHEOP-CC are set to expire in 2017,
but there is still promising work ahead.
If the technology is proven successful
on topsides, its fuel stack system could
also be used subsea. Subsea factories,
comprising many processing facilities at
the wellheads thousands of meters below
the seabed, would then neither need power
from land cables nor floating platforms.
Subsea fuel cells have never been used before and pose a few challenges. The system needs to be watertight. There are also oxygen injection and maintenance issues being that it is deep below the seabed. But if it works, the technology could have many applications for the offshore industry.
“In principle all kinds of gas turbines can be replaced with fuel cells,” said Wærnhus. “Where you pay maintenance for energy, that is what we target, such as offshore platforms and ships.”
Many see digital technology as the next
Fourth Industrial Revolution. Germany
has adopted Industrie 4.0 as a national
public-private strategic initiative to take
advantage of digital technologies. The
World Economic Forum Annual Meeting
in Davos called it the revolution of “cyberphysical
Now the Kongsberg Group wants Norwegian industry to undertake a similar 6.0 initiative, based on the country’s oil and gas adventure “Industry 5.0,”which began half a century ago. As part of the shift, the Norwegian industrial group created a new unit in February called Kongsberg Digital that will bring together the software and simulation expertise within Kongsberg Oil & Gas Technologies and Kongsberg Maritime.
“We’re at the starting point of significant changes due to the digitalization of industrial processes,” said Walter Qvam, Kongsberg Group chief executive last February. “Technologies such as the Internet of Things, Big Data, automation and robotics will lead to significant changes for the industry as well as for the public sector.”
One of the areas for potential savings
from digitalization and automation in
the oil and gas sector will be subsea
inspection, according to DNV GL’s
Technology Outlook 2025. Published
in April, the Norwegian classification
company highlighted autonomous
inspection of pipelines as one of seven
developing oil and gas technologies
forecast to be in operation within the next
An example is Kongsberg Maritime and the Norwegian energy company Statoil, which signed an agreement with Eelume, a Norwegian University of Science and Technology spin-off company, to accelerate new cost saving technology related to subsea inspection, maintenance and repair operations. Eelume has developed a slinky autonomous swimming snake-like robot that can carry out subsea inspections and light interventions such as cleaning and adjusting valves and chokes.
The slender and flexible body is small enough so it can go places that other larger bulkier Remotely Operated Vehicles cannot and reduces the need for expensive support vessels. It will also save costs by introducing new ways of conducting routine tasks and help prevent unscheduled shutdowns by reacting instantly. The robots will be permanently installed on the seabed and perform planned and on-demand inspections and interventions.
“Eelume is a good example of how new technology and innovation contribute to cost reduction,” said Statoil chief technology officer Elisabeth Birkeland Kvalheim. “Instead of using large and expensive vessels for small jobs, we now introduce a flexible robot acting as a self-going janitor on the seabed.”
Statoil is also testing a rail-guided inspection and surveillance robot called Doris, developed jointly with the Brazilian state oil company Petrobras, for remote supervision, diagnosis, and data acquisition on offshore installations. The unique aspect is that the operator will be able to control the robot remotely and inspect specific parts of the platform, according to Pål Johan From, associate professor at the department of mathematical sciences and technology at the Norwegian University of Life Sciences and a co-developer of the project.
“To our knowledge it has not been developed any robots of this type for the oil and gas industry,” said From.
Another future area for digitalization will
be fully automated drilling. Roughly half
of all capital expenditures are related
to offshore production wells drilling,
excluding exploration and appraisal
wells, due to the costs of hiring drilling
rigs. Approximately 30-50% could be
saved from automated drilling offshore,
partly from the use of automatic drill
pipe handling, according to Jørg Arnes,
DNV GL head of strategic foresight for
strategic research and innovation.
“The cost crisis in the oil and gas industry has gone through two stages: first looking into obvious cost cuts through contract negotiations and headcounts, then secondly seeking collaborations to share the load on industry issues and drive standardization,” said Bjørn Søgård, DNV GL Oil & Gas segment director for subsea and floaters. “We are now about to enter a third stage characterized by a willingness to open up for radical new ideas that can reshape industry processes.”
The Sandnes-based Robotic Drilling System (RDS) has installed the world’s first fully automated drill floor robot on a rig at the International Research Institute of Stavanger (IRIS) Ullrig Well Center. The company has replaced conventional hydraulic drill floor machines with a new generation of electric machines or robots that are less energy intensive. A new software platform commands the robot what to do – such as insert a new stand allowing the robot to program itself and operate autonomously. This frees up the driller to focus on important drilling tasks rather than pipe and tool handling.
IRIS recently received NOK 35 million out of a NOK 125 million research pot awarded by the Research Council of Norway’s DEMO 2000 program. Twenty million of the funds will be used for a demonstration of Automated Drilling Process Control, including RDS robots, an open drilling control system and drilling optimization software. RDS has an ongoing DEMO 2000 project regarding testing of the first drill floor robot offshore on the semi-submersible Deepsea Atlantic in 2017.
RDS has so far spent and committed about NOK 365 million in developing the groundbreaking technology. It is the world’s strongest electric robot with a handling capacity of 1,500 kilos. Moreover, a new dynamic robot control system makes the robot capable of shifting handling tools within seconds and being totally re-programmed within minutes in case of a change in work operations.
“Nobody is close to doing this,” said Lars Raunholt, RDS vice president business development and founder.

Offshore oil and gas operations are
moving toward integrated operations (IO),
a more economical and resource-friendly
methodology for offshore oil and gas
exploration, extraction and production.
IO involves the interconnection and
integration of facilities, knowledge, business
units, processes and other resources and
activities through intense use of information
and communication technology.
Some of the new applications made available by IO include:
Of the three optional communication
technologies available to oil and gas
operators, satellite, fibre optic cable and
microwave, only microwave proves that it can
meet all the requirements of communications
between offshore vessels and onshore
facilities cost efficiently.
Satellite suffers from low capacity and high latency limiting the volume and speed of data transmission constraining the number and types of applications that can be transferred onshore.
Fibre optic cable is costly and timeconsuming to deploy, especially in deeper waters, making it prohibitive for many operations.
Microwave is the ideal medium for offshore communications. High in capacity and low in latency, it offers a complete and affordable solution for integrated operations.
Microwave depends on accurate point-topoint
communications, difficult to achieve with
floating vessels. Ceragon’s PointLink solution
is an advanced microwave communication
system that provides over water connectivity
between moving objects like platforms,
drilling rigs and floating production and
storage ships (FPSO). PointLink’s stabilized
antennas maintain perfect alignment between
offshore vessels and land-based facilities.

Framo AS’s pumping systems for the oil and gas industry are based on high-tech solutions for the company’s main markets: offshore floating installations, fixed platforms, terminals and underground storage caverns. As an engineering and manufacturing company with expertise in producing high quality pumping systems and mechanical components, Framo AS’s primary goal is to be a trusted supplier and valued collaboration partner for the company’s customers.
Framo AS, which is based in Bergen, Norway,
is the parent company of Framo AS worldwide.
From its beginning in 1938, this company
has grown into a worldwide organization with
subsidiaries on three continents. Initially, the
company’s main activity was the importation
of foreign marine equipment to Norway. After
World War II, Framo AS began developing
and manufacturing its own products such
as emergency generator sets for link
communication and emergency
fire fighting pumps.
Framo AS’s international activities began with the introduction of high pressure hydraulically driven pumps in the early 1960s. Framo AS was then among the first in applying hydraulic drive to marine pumps. The hydraulic drive on marine pumps had the advantages of low weight, stepless capacity control and no explosion risk. At first the Framo AS´s range consisted of dredge pumps, fish pumps and chemical pumps delivered as portable submersible units. During the 1960s the chemical market expanded and shipping methods changed from handling liquid chemicals in drums to bulk. In close cooperation with ship operators, Frank Mohn AS introduced the concept of one fixed installed submerged pump for each cargo tank. This was the start to what in the seventies became the company’s main product, a total cargo handling system for all kind of tankers.
A growing offshore market for high technology equipment made Framo AS enter this field during the 1970s. By adopting the latest marine thinking on offshore applications the company has contributed to successful oil field developments in the harsh and severe environment of the North Sea.
Today, Framo AS has 1,200 employees and is a leading manufacturer of submerged pumping system for the shipping and offshore industry.
In 2014, Framo AS was acquired by Alfa Laval who has a long tradition within the marine industry. Alfa Laval serves many different industries and is a world leader in heat transfer, centrifugal separation and fluid handling solutions. With the acquisition of Framo AS, Alfa Laval strengthens its position in fluid handling. Framo AS, a part of Alfa Laval Marine and Diesel Division, will maintain the organization and conduct its business as before. Framo AS’s hometown of Bergen is now the technology centre for marine pumping systems within the Alfa Laval group.

manufacturer Migatronic and had a custom
made welding centre based on their special
needs. The centre has a robot and two
workstations providing both efficiency and
great HSE advantages. After three years of
service the company sees close to 0-defect
capability in the welding process and thus
the second machine was ordered. After only
a few months in service HTS Maskinteknikk
has now received a third welding machine
and seems to be well prepared for market
expectations for the years to come.
HTS has an extensive range of welding qualifications for various materialcombinations utilized for the subsea industry, and in diameters up to 1 inch.
HTS has always put a lot of effort into control and inspection and its main control department has its flooring separate from the rest of the building to ensure maximum accuracy in the company’s measurements. In total, three CMM measuring machines offers the opportunity to the continuous serial measuring of finished parts as well as control during production. During 2013 the company also invested in a scanner and a profile measuring machine for efficient in process measurements. HTS has even invested in its own calibration machine to ensure calibration of its equipment and the company also does some calibration for other companies.
With over 6,200 square metres featuring
operator-friendly working conditions, all
processes, including NDT and pressure
testing, are managed in-house in order to
achieve cost effective and efficient logistics
as well as a maximum of flexibility to support
the company’s customers’ needs.
HTS Maskinteknikk has a very dynamic organization and swiftly implements improvements that will become necessary in the future. A major ramp-up in personnel has been made since 2012 to better respond to the markets’ needs and what the future seems to hold.
HTS Maskinteknikk is proud to be a major mechanical actor with a base in Norway.

Particulate can simplify the detection and measurement of particles in water masses by integrating concentration measurement, particle size distributions and particle identification in a single sensor unit. Their new sensor technology will allow for detailed information at the level of individual particles to be obtained, without the need for sampling and laboratory testing.
The new particle sensor will detect, measure and characterize single particles in real-time. The sensor uses a combination of size information and spectral scatter or fluorescence to identify each individual particle. Based on previous knowledge of particle identification, it should be possible for the Particulate sensor to distinguish between particles of different origin, for example: algae and other biological material, minerals, drilling mud, surface-attached chemicals and oil droplets.
The Particulate sensor can be used to detect changes in water mass characteristics based on changes in algal composition, detection and documentation of oil droplets in discharges and from leaks or spills, to measure the extent of a spill and to document the effects of use of chemicals on spills. The sensor can also be used in-line for measurement of oil droplet concentrations in discharges or the characterization of ballast water to ensure compliance with regulations before discharge.
One of the challenges for the industry is the validation of dispersion and fate models for oil and drilling mud. The new sensor will be compact and can be placed stationary on any submersible rig, on a ROV or an AUV for the logging of particles in the water mass. This will enable validation of dispersion and fate in real-time.
Particulate will have a library of particle
signals that can be continually updated based
on new information, both from the field and
from laboratory testing. The Particulate library
will enable immediate particle recognition
as measurements are made. In addition,
customers can suggest particles of interest,
and the method allows for fast testing and
analysis, so that new information can be
integrated into the system quickly.
Particulate will collaborate with clients to ensure that the company can meet their particle monitoring needs.

The TCC® has unique characteristics which are the consequence of generating heat through friction. A major differentiator compared to any thermal technology is the extreme short retention time of the waste in the TCC unit which not only results in recovered oil that is comparable to newly created base oils but also in very clean solids, a high processing capacity and a small footprint. A very important effect of the friction process is that it allows for full temperature control meaning temperature stability and the possibility to adjust temperatures immediately when needed to achieve an optimum separation result. With almost 60 TCC units in operation in the world, the TCC is the most applied technology for treatment of oily drilling waste and the TCC is the only thermal system used offshore.
Thermtech AS is located in Bergen, Norway and is the owner of the TCC technology. Thermtech supplies mobile units, stationary units and offshore units. Thermtech’s mission is to support its customers, mainly oilfield services - and waste management companies, to deliver superb treatment services to the final customers, the operators. Thermtech’s business model also includes manufacturing rights to selected licensees.
A TCC unit will be tailored to meet specific needs which derive from project specific requirements, climate conditions and environmental objectives such as discharge limits. Once the technical specification of the unit has been agreed upon with the customer, Thermtech will perform the detail engineering and the manufacturing of the unit. Installation and Commissioning is done by Thermtech field engineers in close cooperation with the customer’s personnel.

Once the operators are well trained, Thermtech engineers move out. In Norway Thermtech has a workshop in which process mills are produced and refurbished, a test center for new waste streams and a warehouse for the storage of spare parts. From Mongstad, spare parts are distributed all over the world and if required field engineers are travelling to location to perform repairs.

Oslo Operations Manager Ola Ekern received a late morning call from Norway’s top emergency parts logistics customer requesting urgent delivery of a replacement part. The part in question needed to be retrieved in Vasteras, Sweden, an 80-minute drive from Stockholm, and carried aboard a flight departing Stockholm in 100 minutes. Even by World Courier standards, the timeline was tight.
“Our team quickly realized that we would
not make the flight if we used the regular
passenger/security check-in,” explained
Marius Undlien, country manager for
World Courier in Norway. “So instead, we
booked the airport’s VIP service, which
is most often used by celebrities. When
our team member Lisa Hallstrom got to
the Stockholm airport with our customer’s
emergency part in-hand, a red carpet had
been rolled out and a limo was waiting for
With six minutes to spare, the package was x-rayed and whisked off, along with Hallstrom, to the waiting, fully boarded aircraft. Passengers aboard the aircraft watched expectantly as the limousine pulled up alongside the plane on the tarmac, where Hallstrom and the critical spare part gracefully exited the limo and boarded. As soon as she had safely stowed her “carry-on” spare part, the aircraft door closed and the plane taxied onto the runway.
When the aircraft landed in Bergen,
Norway, the consignee took possession
of the part. Minutes later, it was aboard
a heli-lift destined for the North Sea oil
rig. By late afternoon, the platform crew
confirmed that the part had been installed
by one of their technicians.
Failure to meet the scheduled heli-lift would have required the customer to charter a special helicopter to transport the emergency spare part. Both the customer and World Courier agreed that the added cost of the VIP red-carpet service was well worth it.
Total time from Vasteras to somewhere in the North Sea? Just more than five hours. Now that’s service worthy of red-carpet treatment.
