Contextual Scenarios

Norwegian oil and gas industry towards 2040

Scenario analysis

The Norwegian Oil Industry Association

To analyse how the future of energy demand and production will change and affect the Norwegian petroleum industry and society at large

Process and result
The final scenario report assessed the phasing in of alternative energy and the impact this would have on the Norwegian economy. Norway has been able to avoid the NRC through strict management, but the country is still challenged by aging and having to support Europe's largest public sector. Norway is one of the most well-educated nations in the world, but the Norwegian R&D investment is still only half of its Scandinavian neighbours. The report concluded that teforms are needed if future challenges like these are to be met.
