«I look forward to getting started. The southern section of the North Sea is a very exciting area of the shelf, with a mix of mature fields with vast remaining volumes and new, major discoveries,» Kjell Aasoldsen says.

Aasoldsen holds a master’s degree in process technology from the University of Bergen (2003) and an engineering degree in chemical engineering from Bergen University College (2000).
