Order issued to Statoil following audit of working environment management in the company

During the period 26 September- 16 December 2005, we conducted an audit of working environment management in Statoil. Our findings during the audit resulted in the issuance of a notification of order, and this order has now been issued to the company.


Based on Statoil's reply to the notification and a meeting held with the company on 21 March 2006, the wording and references to regulations in the order have been precisely defined as compared with the wording in the notification.

The order is worded as follows:
