Other times we think and dream here on earth
Unprecedented change is taking place in the energy sector. Geopolitics, climate change and the need for increased efficiency are crucial, while demand for energy is rapidly growing. It presents a daunting prospect. However, Statoil believes that new realities bring new opportunities. Significant change, both in our company and in the industry, is necessary to turn the new realities into new opportunities. In Statoil we are technology optimists, convinced that new technology can make the world a better place. Looking back, we can see that engineering expertise in the field of hydroelectric power helped make Norway adept at conceiving and producing major offshore concrete constructions such as Troll. Our offshore expertise led to our becoming a world leader in subsea technology. And this know-how might well lead in turn to some totally new and different fields of expertise. We believe that open innovation and cooperation provide the success that will allow Statoil to continue to play an important role in providing energy for the future.
