Travel stays restricted

October 8, 2001, 11:00 CEST

Travel restrictions imposed by Statoil on 20 September are to be maintained. The position will be evaluated continuously in light of the American attack on Afghanistan.

Under no circumstances will Statoil personnel travel on business to Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Pakistan or Yemen.

Any business travel to other countries in the Middle East or northern Africa has to be approved by the head of the relevant business area. There are no restrictions on travelling to Turkey.

Intercontinental journeys can only be undertaken in consultation with the appropriate business area management.
