Norway Upstream Fiscal and Regulatory Guide

Norway Upstream Fiscal and Regulatory Guide



Norway governs upstream petroleum operations through a royalty/tax framework. On May 12, 2020, the government will submit a bill to the Storting to temporarily amend petroleum taxation. The stimulus, if implemented, would attempt to incentivise near-term investment in projects by reducing taxable profits for companies in the short-to-medium term. However, some members of industry have described the proposal as insufficient to maintain the current levels of activity. If investment (particularly in upcoming projects) is delayed due to company capital expenditure reductions and production cuts are implemented to help commodity prices recover, the country risks a production decline over the medium term.
