Abstract

For medium to larger-sized oil companies, decreasing production has made production well drilling, rather than exploration wells, a priority. Regulations have historically been strict for smaller energy companies that wanted to prequalify as licensed partners in fields offshore Norway. However, different regulations and changes in the fiscal policy have made it possible for a number of new companies, Norwegian and foreign, to enter the Norwegian sector over the last couple of years.
