Record result in first half(VEDLEGG)

Statoil recorded a profit after tax of NOK 10.6 billion for the first six months of 2001 — the best half-year result it has ever achieved.

The figure is NOK 3.3 billion higher than it was in the corresponding period of last year, and represents a 45 per cent increase.

This improvement can primarily be attributed to sales gains, higher prices and margins, and the effect of the group’s cost cutting and restructuring programme.
