Addressing the webinar, Ambassador Grete Løchen said:

“Norway has one of the world’s most developed petroleum industries with state-of-the-art technology, contributing about 50% of our total export revenue. Norway and Norwegian companies want to leverage on our world class competence and experience within offshore activities in the oil and gas sector and transform it and develop offshore wind power projects. We want to be ambitious when it comes to a greener and cleaner energy transition”.
