Oil And Gas Search Closer To Shore

So far, exploratory drilling has not been permitted close to shore. Experts believe large amounts of gas may be found closer to shore on the Norwegian Shelf, according to the Norway Post. Oil Companies now wish to start exploring for oil and gas along the coast of Vestlandet and Soerlandet. Oil Directorate CEO, Rolf Wiborg states, "We will first carry out extensive analyses of the consequences for both the environment and the fish stock along the coast, before opening these areas for exploratory drilling".
