New environment vice president
Eli Aamot has been appointed as Statoil's vice president for the environment, with effect from 1 February 2002.
Ms Aamot (41) was educated at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology in Trondheim. Since joining Statoil in 1992, she has been involved in research and development issues relating to health, safety and the environment (HSE). She is currently head of HSE for the Åsgard licence.
Stig Bergseth, senior vice president for HSE in Statoil, looks forward to working with Ms Aamot in continuing the good efforts which are underway with regard to environmental issues – an area to which Statoil gives high priority.
"The scope for emissions will continue to shrink, while the environmental challenges facing the industry will continue to expand, both in scope and complexity," says Mr Bergseth.
Ms Aamot takes the place of Knut Barland, who has been environment vice president since 1998. Mr Barland will take up a new position as vice president with responsibility for production at the Kårstø gas treatment complex north of Stavanger.
