Extractive Industries

The petroleum activities have been crucial for Norway’s economy for more than 40 years. In 2012, the petroleum sector represented 23% of the country’s total value creation. Norway is ranked as the seventh largest oil exporter and the fourteenth largest oil producer in the world. 1.9 million barrels of crude oil per day were produced that year, or 2.1% of the world total. In 2011, Norway was the world’s third largest gas exporter and the world’s sixth largest gas producer. Norway's proved hydrocarbon reserves have been in decline over the past decade. At the end of 2012, proved oil reserves of 7.5 billion barrels of oil or 0.4 % of the world's reserves (Source: BP Statistical Review of World Energy 2013 and Facts 2013).

EITI Reporting

The country produces EITI Reports that disclose revenues from the extraction of its natural resources. Companies disclose what they have paid in taxes and other payments and the government discloses what it has received. These two sets of figures are compared and reconciled.
Reporting process is on-track.

EITI Implementation

Norway published its 2012 EITI Report on 20 December 2013.

Since its 2009 EITI Report, Norway publishes figures from its EITI Reports in an excel file and on the Government's Open Data Hotel.
