Petroleum Sector Collaboration in Norway Under Great Pressure

Collaboration within the Norwegian Continental Shelf among a variety of oil and gas entities is under great pressure, according to Ingvill H. Foss, director of supervisory activities at Petroleumstilsynet.

“We see that collaboration between the parties is under greater pressure, and that worries us,” Foss said at a recent petroleum conference held in Stavanger.”

“We must now strive to get collaboration between all sides to function. Between company and union officials, between company and safety delegates,” she added.

Backing Foss’ observation, Statoil’s group chief safety delegate Peter A. Hansens said despondency was emerging among colleagues.

“We see despondency emerging among our colleagues and operational management because they aren’t being listened to. You should know that everyone is ready to contribute but finds that top management no longer takes any notice of good proposals which are made,” Hansens said at the conference.
