Norway downstream oil long-term outlook 2015

Norway downstream oil long-term outlook 2015

Report summary

Oil product supply from Norway’s two refineries exceeds domestic demand, making Norway a large net exporter of refined oil products and setting inland market prices at export parity. Norway’s oil products market is highly-concentrated, with four companies – Statoil Fuel & Retail, Shell, ExxonMobil, and Uno-X Energy – supplying more than 85% of demand. At end-2014 Shell sold its fuels marketing businesses to St1 and Statoil Fuel & Retail sold its aviation fuel supply division to Air BP. Demand for the major transport fuels in Norway is expected to remain flat or negative over the longer-term, as engine efficiency gains and electric car penetration continues to erode gasoline and diesel use in this mature economy.
