Vår Energi will provide opportunities where we do our business activities. We are facilitating employment and industry ripple effects. We pay particular attention to contributing to local ripple effects in Finnmark, with regards to daily operations of the Goliat field, northwest of Hammerfest.
The Goliat field development has led to major ripple effects in northern areas of Norway. Research illustrates that goods and services with a value of NOK 1.3 billion were provided by regional suppliers during the development phase only, and that 460 jobs have been created.
Further positive developments in areas such as education, research and development, culture and tourism are also documented. We expected to retain substantial ripple effects due to the operations and maintenance of Goliat in the future.
