We're reducing methane emissions in the US
On November 21st, 2019, Equinor submitted comments to the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) outlining our view that regulation of methane is necessary.
Our upstream activities in the US are managed from Houston, Texas, while our wind power, midstream, marketing and trading activities are managed from our office in Stamford, Connecticut.

Equinor’s ambition is to become an offshore wind major. In the US, we are pursuing the development of offshore wind projects on both the east and west coasts, and rapidly becoming a leading partner in the country’s growing offshore wind industry.
With new leases, we are gaining a strong strategic position in the US market:
The US onshore operations are Equinor’s largest international production outside Norway with total equity production of ~309 MBOE/D in the second quarter of 2019.
Since 2008 we have been active in the development and production of onshore oil and gas in the US. Headquarter in Austin, Texas, our onshore portfolio is focused on the Bakken play in North Dakota and the Marcellus/Utica formations in the Appalachian Basins. Equinor is also leveraging our US experience with our international partner-operated assets in Turkey and Argentina.
We are a partner in nine producing fields in the Gulf of Mexico and two in development. We also own and operate the Titan production facility.
