53 delegates from 20 countries visited Kristiansand and GCE NODE as part of the Petrad program.

Petrad is a non-profit Norwegian government foundation established by the Norwegian Agency for Development Cooperation (Norad) and the Norwegian Petroleum Directorate in 1989 to facilitate the transfer of knowledge and experience from petroleum management, administration and technology between managers and experts in governments and national oil companies.

Petrad’s main services and activities are channelled and financed through the Norwegian government’s “Oil for development” programme (OfD).

On day 1 of the two days visit, Petrad participants stopped by NOV facilities in Søgne on the way to a reception, hosted by Deputy Mayor Jørgen Kristiansen, in the old Town Hall in Kristiansand. On day 2, Petrad was given a presentation of GCE NODE by CEO Anne-Grete Ellingsen.
