New ways to growth in the oil and gas industry
– A joint effort for the development of Danish oil and gas production

Natural resources in the Danish continental shelf must benefit the entire Danish society and our descendants.

There is still considerable potential for future production of oil and gas in the Danish part of the North Sea. If the potential shall be ​​realized, significant investments have to be made in increased exploration; development of marginal fields along with intensified activities to increase the recovery factor.

A realization of the potential requires an extraordinary effort from everyone in the industry and society if the Danish oil and gas sector shall remain a beacon of value creation, job creation and unique career path for all walks of life. But what does it take and how can it be accomplished?
