According to the Norwegian media, Borten Moe, who is also a farmer and a co-founder of the Norwegian oil company OKEA – is working to become a platform manager at OKEA’s Draugen field.

Finansavisen has reported, citing Stavanger Aftenblat, that Borten Moe has taken a safety course and will go through an apprenticeship period to become an offshore oil worker.

Borten Moe formed OKEA in 2015 together with Erik Haugane, former Det norske oljeselskap CEO, with a focus on developing discovered oil and gas fields on the Norwegian continental shelf. His last position was Senior Vice President of Business Development at OKEA.

Ola Borten Moe did not reply to Offshore Energy Today’s email seeking confirmation and more info on the Norwegian media reports of him working to become an offshore worker.

OKEA bought the Draugen field from Shell last year. The company will this month drill its first operated wells, also at the Draugen field.
