Oil and gas for the 21st century

The Oil and Gas Strategy was the first 21 strategy, established in 2001. Through OG21, we produce reports that are read and used by all actors in the petroleum sector. The main strategy is revised every four to five years. The current strategy came in November 2021. The board of the group is appointed by the Norwegian Ministry of Energy.

OG21 have in collaboration with Rystad Energy analyzed the importance of the Norwegian continental shelf for energy security in Europe. The draft report was presented at the OG21-forum 16 November 2023. The final report is now published and available.

This year's theme was: "On par with Europe: Technology that secures Norwegian energy supplies through the green shift".

The OG21 Technology Champion award for 2023 goes to Professor Asgeir Sørensen at NTNU and founder and director Vidar Mathiesen from InflowControl. 

The OG21 Strategy was last revised in 2021. The strategy shows how new technology and knowledge continue to be important for high competitiveness for the Norwegian petroleum industry, for reducing greenhouse gases during production and along value chains, and for creating fertile ground for new industries.
