OSLO -- Norwegian Minister of Petroleum and Energy Terje Riis-Johansen has invited oil companies to nominate blocks for the 21st licensing round on the Norwegian continental shelf.

“With the 21st licensing round, I seek to give the oil industry access to attractive areas which are less explored,” says Riis-Johansen. “It is important to provide the industry access to frontier areas through predictable licensing rounds. The nominated areas will hopefully contribute to long-term value creation in the petroleum industry.”

The deadline for nominations is noon on Jan 13, 2010.
