Statoil corporate report

Statoil corporate report

Report summary

Low oil prices have put Statoil's finances and investment-led growth strategy under pressure. The attractiveness of Statoil's diverse project pipeline has diminished since oil prices started to fall and a previously superior medium-term growth outlook has weakened compared to our pre-crash view. The outlook is also constrained by Statoil's finances with gearing the highest among the Majors. We look at the challenges Statoil faces to balance near-term financial pressures with longer-term growth.
