Norwegian oil production and keeping global warming ‘well below 2°C’

As part of the Paris Agreement, world leaders agreed to work to keep global warming “well below” 2°C above pre-industrial levels, aiming to avoid the most dangerous impacts of climate change. This requires rapid and sustained action to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

Oil and gas production is a major part of Norway’s economy, accounting for 22% of its GDP and two thirds of its exports. Here you see Saipem 7000, the world’s second largest crane vessel, after the Thialf.
