Information policy and media relations

The information we give to the industry, the media and the general public will be open, accessible and correct.


Given the special position occupied by the oil and gas industry in Norwegian society, we will provide information about our activities and reply to questions as far as is possible and prudent with regard to our role as a government agency and our overall objectives.

Media relations
We respond to all inquiries from the media as far as is possible and prudent with regard to our role as a government agency and our overall objectives.

In addition to direct media contacts, we use our website to provide information about our follow-up of undesirable incidents and other matters.

Generally speaking, we publish editorial articles in connection with our own activities – when initiating our own investigations or publishing investigation reports, for example.

Media relations in an emergency
In an emergency created by a serious incident, we check that the operator acts in compliance with regulatory requirements. This includes a continuous assessment of measures taken to regain control.

Keeping the media informed about the status of the areas we supervise forms part of our duties in an emergency.
