Norwegian marine minerals potential could be worth billions

Posted On: 27-11-2020

Marine minerals could create 21,000 jobs and a $20 billion market for Norway in the next decades, Rystad Energy report says. That is the most optimistic estimate in a new Rystad Energy report on excavation of offshore minerals on the Norwegian Continental Shelf (NCS). “We are looking to provide minerals for the green transition by utilizing the technology and competence from the Norwegian oil and gas industry,” says Anniken Hauglie, CEO of the Norwegian Oil and Gas Association. A successful transition to the low-carbon society depends upon the availability of certain minerals, such as copper, cobalt, zinc and several rare earth minerals. Without these minerals, the transition from molecules to electrons – that is from fossil fuels to renewable energy – will come to a halt. “The onshore deposits of these minerals will be exhausted at some point, which is why we need to turn our attention to offshore deposits. Norway is likely to have viable resources on the Norwegian Continental Shelf, but this remains to be further explored,” says Lars Eirik Nicolaisen, Senior Partner at Rystad Energy. His report shows that Norway can draw on 50 years of experience from the oil and gas industry. “The transfer of knowledge from oil and gas to marine minerals is extensive in areas such as exploration, subsea, topside, drilling, and competence on corrosion and harsh weather. We already know how to operate and make a profit in the ocean space. And we are likely to find the resources on the NCS which will enable us to build a profitable and important industry for the transition to a low-carbon society,” says Nicolaisen.

Adoption is the process by which the law permits the creation of a parent-child relationship which did not previously exist. When you adopt a child, Best Lawyers law recognizes the child as the equivalent of your biological offspring. The adopted child has the same rights of inheritance as a biological child, and adoptive parents have the same duty to provide financial support for an adopted child as they have for their biological children.
