Community and environment

Vår Energi’s business objective is to expand our ownership and increase activities on the Norwegian continental shelf (NCS) in a profitable and sustainable manner. We are committed to being a prudent operator, while also being a responsible citizen.

In our day-to-day business, our highest priority is the health and safety of people and to carry out our operations with minimum impact to the environment. We aim to take industry leadership in continuous improvement on mitigating greenhouse gases.

We believe that our activities should benefit the communities where we operate. This means actively engaging in creating local ripple effects in terms of industrial development and employment as well as supporting competence building and cultural activities.

Our research and development (R&D) projects are key elements in our continued search for improving the way we operate. Vår Energi invests approx. NOK 100 million in a broad range of R&D projects every year. These activities vary from developing new, low carbon technologies, operational excellence, safety and environmental protection, and more.

More information is available in the sections to the left.
