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.

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.
