Per Haaland is VP Drilling and Wells at Equinor.

“If Norway is your primary market and you are looking for a second country to focus on, it should be Brazil”, says Per Haaland, VP Drilling and Wells at Equinor.

With declining output from the Norwegian Continental Shelf, Equinor looks to expand internationally. In building a ‘world-class portfolio’, Equinor is well established in a number of other countries, both onshore and offshore in oil and gas, but also in the renewable sector, that is primarily in floating wind projects.

“Equinor is now the second largest operator in Brazil. And Brazil will continue to be an important country for Equinor in years to come. We are currently involved in several major projects that will take us 10-15 years to develop and make operational. Based on recent tenders, it looks like the companies that already know us, will follow us internationally,” said Haaland.

Pending interest from cluster participants, GCE NODE plans a trip to Brazil in March 2019.

“Together with Norwegian Energy Partners, Equinor and others, we are looking to put together a program tailored to meet the interests of companies in GCE NODE,” says Anne-Grete Ellingsen, CEO of GCE NODE.
