Om Statoil ASA
Statoil is an international energy company with operations in more than 30 countries. Building on 40 years of experience from oil and gas production on the Norwegian continental shelf, we are committed to accommodating the world's energy needs in a responsible manner, applying technology and creating innovative business solutions. We are headquartered in Norway with approx. 21,000 employees worldwide, and are listed on the New York and Oslo stock exchanges.
Development and Production Norway (DPN) will capture the full potential and ensure maximum value creation on the Norwegian continental shelf. We will therefore drive the opening of new acreage while maturing IOR and exploration prospects. Speed of delivery and cost improvements through standardisation and the repeated use of proven solutions will be key here. DPN will continue to be a preferred employer, within the Norwegian business community and among students, and will continue to develop our people in the best way possible.
Since opening in 1976, our Harstad office has grown to around 300 employees from 23 nationalities. Earlier in 2013, the company took the important step of creating an Operations North division and basing it in Harstad,. The office is responsible for most of Statoil’s substantial exploration program, early phase field development, drilling and well technology, development and production on the northern Norwegian continental shelf (NCS), a geographic area which covers the northern Norwegian Sea and the Barents Sea.
Due to recent finds by our Exploration team, and the consequent increase in activity in the area, Operations North is now in a period of expansive growth. Production in the area is predicted to more than triple, and our workforce in Harstad is expected to double. We are therefore seeking talented and engaged professionals to join us for cutting edge, pioneering projects across the whole value chain.
In addition to the area development responsibility within Operations North, the Area developer will also be responsible for ensuring the continuation of the North Area Initiative (NAI) connected to the establishment of the new operational area. This will consist of the follow up of internal and external measures with regards to effects, preparedness and coexistence in the north.
