Key development projects are found in Angola, Brazil, Canada, UKCS and Tanzania.  Angola produced 206,000 boe/d in 2014 which equals to around 10% of Statoil’s total production. This is the highest oil production in any one country outside Norway.

Statoil has been present in Nigeria since 1992 when the country first opened-up its deep-water licences.

Statoil (Nigeria) Limited (SNL) is a wholly owned subsidiary of Statoil ASA and currently the operator of two deep-water offshore licenses. Its main partners are Chevron and Shell. Chevron operates the Agbami field in which SNL is an equity participant. SNL is a separate profit centre within the Development and Production International (DPI) division. As such, SNL’s mission is to move proven oil and gas resources in Nigeria through development and into production. SNL also supports both Statoil ASA’s Exploration and Manufacturing Marketing and Products divisions’ activities related to Nigeria. SNL is positioned to expand its portfolio in the Nigerian oil and gas sector.

SNL is accountable for achieving targets on HSE, equity production, opex, capex and net-cash-flow related to oil and gas development and production in Nigeria. SNL is also accountable for developing and managing the local organisation and people in Nigeria.
