Strong Norwegian Position

Norway is moving ahead on the legal framework and conducted the first marine mineral mapping cruise in 2018. Ingvil Smines Tybring-Gjedde, State Secretary of the Norwegian Ministry of Petroleum and Energy gave the introductory speech at the 47th Underwater Mining Conference (UMC) in Bergen in September. She emphasised Norway’s strong position within the ocean industries and the unique opportunity to take a leading position in creating a new ocean industry. We can build on strong interaction and collaboration between existing industries, in particular between the petroleum and maritime sectors.
