Norway, Greenland agree data exchange

Offshore staff

OSLO Norway -- The Norwegian Petroleum Directorate (NPD) has signed a framework agreement with Greenland’s Bureau of Minerals and Petroleum (BMP) to exchange information concerning resource management.

In addition to a general exchange of experience, BMP aims to cooperate with the NPD on data management. One focus is exploration and exploitation of petroleum resources in the Arctic.
The framework agreement can be supplemented with sub-agreements in specific areas.

NPD views the agreement with Greenland as integral to the Norwegian focus on northern areas, claiming that joint resource management in the northern and Arctic areas is of great importance.

It has entered into similar agreements with other neighboring countries in the northern regions.
