About the conference

Energy Norway 2023 is a meeting place for subsurface professionals in Norway and international communities, policy makers, regulatory bodies, and students.

In December 2021, University of Stavanger with partners was awarded the National Centre for Sustainable Utilization of Energy Resources on the Norwegian Shelf (NCS2030). The centre is to be the scientific and technology driver to facilitate an energy-efficient, multi-purpose utilization of the subsurface into a “Sustainable Subsurface Value Chain” to reach the NZE goals on the Norwegian Continental Shelf (NCS). At Energy Norway 2023 you will get scientific presentations linked to the scope of the centre, namely subsurface energy systems, net-zero emission production, digitalization, and society.

In collaboration with NPF

Energy Norway 2023 is arranged in collaboration with the Norwegian Petroleum Society (NPF). NPF is a membership body for people interested in the country’s oil and gas activities. NPF provides the industry’s most important meeting places for professional discussion and exchange of new knowledge – independent of financial and political interests. NPF helped to found ONS – ranked among one of the world’s leading petroleum conferences.
