Statoil changes company's structureStaff writer ▼ | June 26, 2015
Statoil announces adjustments to the company's structure and operating model to become a more cost efficient and fit for the future organisation.
Oil industry Statoil Technical Efficiency Programme
In Development and Production Norway (DPN): Statoil will increase its focus in Mid- and North-Norway by consolidating the operations in one business cluster, Operations North. The activities at the various office locations will continue like before, and the management team will be spread on the respective locations.
The Norwegian Sea and the Barents Sea are two of Statoil's core regions, with considerable activities and large frontier areas with a long-term potential. By combining the expert communities in both regions, the goal is to capture synergies, cost savings, and deepen our position for future business opportunities.
In Technology, Projects and Drilling (TPD): A merge between today's TPD TEX (technical excellence) and TPD RDI (Research, development and innovation) into a new Research and Technology unit (TPD R&T) which will integrate «end-to-end» technology development and implementation in Statoil and provide technical expertise and advice in selected areas.
In addition the project development process will be simplified. The current project organization will be merged with Field development in Development and Production Norway (DPN), Development and Production International (DPI) and Marketing, Midstream & Processing (MMP) and renamed Project Development (PRD). This unit will take on full ownership to the totality of project development.
COO: The Chief Operating officer role will further strengthen safe and efficient operations across Statoil. COO responsibilities will cover safety and security, analysis of operational efficiency, operational improvement projects, management system and operational efficiency.
To fully integrate and further strengthen our work with safe and efficient operations also at the corporate level, Corporate Safety and Security will transfer to the COO organisation August 1. ■
