Equinor in brief

Equinor at a glance
Equinor is a broad international energy company headquartered in Norway and with operations in more than 30 countries around the world. We are committed to meeting the world's energy needs in a responsible manner, applying technology and creating innovative solutions.

We are a company built on our Norwegian heritage and pioneering spirit, and have developed the Norwegian continental shelf (NCS) to become one of the world’s leading petroleum regions. We are also the world’s largest offshore operator, the second-largest gas exporter to Europe, and a growing force in renewables. We are the world leader in carbon capture storage and carbon efficiency in oil and gas production. While seeking to satisfy growing energy demand we recognise the need to minimize impact on our environment.

Our history
We were founded as The Norwegian State Oil Company (Statoil) in 1972, and became listed on the Oslo and New York stock exchanges in June 2001. Statoil merged with Hydro's oil and gas division in October 2007, divested the service station network in 2012, and changed our name to Equinor in May 2018. 

Our shareholders
The Norwegian State holds 67% of our shares through the Ministry of Trade, Industry and Fisheries, while US investors hold 11%, private Norwegian owners hold 8%, other European investors 8%, UK investors hold 3%, and others 2%.
