Equinor oil and gas exploration summary

Report summary

Statoil’s 2018 name change to Equinor was a highly symbolic reinforcement of the company’s strategic vision to become a broad energy business, with Norway at its core. The rebrand underlines its shift towards new energy and low carbon but does not mean an end to upstream oil and gas. This remains core to the rebranded business, with future exploration an essential part of discovering new energy resources. Equinor has stated its ambition to be “a leading explorer delivering profitable, high-quality resources” to help it remain competitive in a lower carbon future.
