Company Description

Norske Shell

Shell entered Norway in 1912 as a supplier of fuel to the fishing fleet in the northern part of the country. Since then we have been a part of everyday life of many Norwegians.

In Norway, Shell have made the impossible possible. We discovered the giant Troll field in 1979. To access these enormous resources of gas and oil, we built the largest structure ever moved by man - the Troll A platform. It still has decades left to produce natural gas for Europe, creating a huge value for Norway.

In 1993, Shell was first to produce oil north of the 62. latitude when Draugen commenced operations, opening a new petroleum province in Mid-Norway.

The Ormen Lange field again defined new standards for what is possible. We remotely operate wells 1,000 meters below the sea surface and export the gas via the Nyhamna processing plant to customers in the UK - who rely on us for more than 20% of their gas consumption.

Knarr was added to our operated portfolio when Shell combined with BG in 2016 and has exceeded expectations for production volumes and uptime.

Shell seeks to further develop our activity in Norway. We explore to find more energy on the Norwegian Continental Shelf. We share Norway's commitment to address climate change.

A/S Norske Shell is a partner in Norway's' full scale carbon capture and storage (CCS) project as well as the world's largest CCS test facility at Mongstad. We also actively chase opportunities in new energies.

  • Education requirements: Relevant degree on bachelor/master level;
  • Experience with use of Competence Management Systems and Pedagogic knowledge to continuously improve the competence development and learning outcome;
