Norwegian Oil Industry set to grow in 2014

Norwegian Oil Industry set to grow in 2014Norway, the eighth largest exporter of oil in the world, expects that oil production will decrease from 561 mln to 538 mln barrels between 2012 to 2013; however, 2014 will see a gradual recovery.

According to Gro Braekken, leader of industry lobby group Norwegian Oil and Gas, “It’s important and urgent to get new areas in order to keep oil companies on the Norwegian shelf and continue to develop it.”
