An industry characterized by tougher conditions, but also optimistic, is gathered in Stavanger. Crown Prince Haakon opened the ONS conference for 2016, where the theme is the transition to a new reality for the energy industry.
– Change is one of the few constant factors in a world in transition, said the crown prince m from the podium Monday.
The situation in the oil town of Stavanger and the region around it is quite different now than when Crown Prince Haakon recently opened oil conference in 2014. Oil prices have halved, cost and job cuts have been vast and unemployment has grown.
– In such times it is important that the transition from the current situation to a more stable and desirable situation is speedy.
