Norwegian Oil and Gas Association elects new chairman

The Norwegian Oil and Gas Association (Norsk olje og gass), an employers’ organization for oil and supplier companies, has elected Kristin Færøvik as its new chairman. 

According to the association, Færøvik succeeds Norske Shell’s Tor Arnesen.

Before Færøvik started in Lundin Norway, she was Managing Director of Rosenberg WorleyParsons for five years.

The new board consists of: Karl Johnny Hersvik, Aker BP; Morten Mauritzen, ExxonMobil; Arne Sigve Nylund, Statoil; Bernd Schrimpf, Wintershall Norway; Therese Log Bergjord, ESS Support Services; John E Stangeland, NorSeaGroup; Torjer Halle, Schlumberger Norway; Monica Bjørkmann, Subsea 7.
