Known as Gullkronen (gold crown), this award is presented in nine categories to companies, teams or individuals who have shown an outstanding commitment on the NCS.
Rystad is responsible for selecting the winners in collaboration with the industry. The jury’s citation for ConocoPhillips said in part:
“The operator of the year has combated declining production by drilling more wells. Recent investment decisions have meant a significant increase in reserves and producing life for the field, and more new projects are under way.
“The jury is impressed with the operator’s commitment to the field and its [enhanced oil recovery] EOR project, as reflected in major investment decisions and more rigs.”
Kurt Fredheim and Robert Skrede accepted the award on behalf of the company at a ceremony in Oslo on 6 February 2013.
