We are pleased and proud that in his role as Prime Minister, Jens Stoltenberg has naturally made several visits to ONS. The Norwegian Prime Minister’s speech is a key element of ONS.
Important meeting place
Prime Minister Stoltenberg recognises ONS as an important meeting place for the oil and gas industry.
"It is important to have a platform where we can meet with the oil and gas industry, where we can discuss new ideas and meet new people. The ONS in Stavanger is such a meeting place”, said the Prime Minister at ONS in 2008.
Kjell Ursin-Smith, ONS CEO and President, always looks forward to the Prime Minister’s visit.
“Prime Minister Stoltenberg has always used ONS to present a broad review of Norwegian and international energy strategies. Personally, I am impressed by the Prime Minister’s excellent overall perspective. He recognises the links between energy conservation, security of supply, carbon capture and storage, and the continued development of renewable energy sources.”
