Petroleum Industry Transformations: Lessons from Norway and Beyond
Taking the case of the Norwegian petroleum industry as its vantage point, this book produced by the SIVAC project at TIK discusses the question of industrial transformations in resource-based industries.
Petroleum Industry Transformations: Lessons from Norway and Beyond presents new, empirically-based analyses of the development of the petroleum industry, with an emphasis on three ongoing transformation processes:
- Technological upgrading and innovation in upstream petroleum.
- Globalisation of the petroleum industry and suppliers’ experiences of entering foreign markets.
- Diversification into and out of petroleum – and the potential for new growth paths after oil.
Drawing together a range of key thinkers in this field, this volume addresses the ways in which the petroleum industry and its supply industry has changed since the turn of the millennium. It provides recommendations for the development of resource economies in general and petroleum economies in particular.
Project: Supplier Industry and Value Creation (SIVAC)
The main objective of SIVAC is to examine how the supply industry has evolved over the last 15 years and how it has contributed to innovation and value creation through international export of technological expertise, technology transfer from oil/gas to other industries and increased productivity on the Norwegian continental shelf. SIVAC is financed through the Norwegian Research Council's programme Petrosam2.
