HRH Crown Prince Haakon was also present at ONS 2014, and visited a number of companies at the exhibition.

“It is a great honour for us to have HRH Crown Prince Haakon present at the Opening Ceremony to give the inauguration speech,” says Leif Johan Sevland, President and CEO of the ONS Foundation.

Royal Patronage
The ONS Foundation is grateful to be under the patronage of HM King Harald.

The members of the Norwegian Royal Family were quick to recognise the importance of the activities on the Norwegian Continental Shelf when oil and gas was discovered.

HM King Harald, who was then Crown Prince of Norway, soon became patron of ONS. As a result of this commitment, a member of the Royal Family has been present at every ONS since 1974.
