Fossil Energy – Norway
The Norwegian Petroleum Directorate (NPD) is changing its name to the Norwegian Offshore Directorate as of 1 January 2024.
The new name reflects the additional responsibilities assigned to the directorate in recent years.
In addition to petroleum this includes tasks associated with CO2 storage (CCS), offshore wind and seabed minerals.
There will be no formal changes beyond the name change. The organisation and contacts will remain the same. However, the name change will have a few practical consequences.
The name and domains will be updated gradually starting on 1 January 2024.
The website will change from www.npd.no to www.sodir.no.
E-mail-addresses will change from @npd.no to @sodir.no.
