    CONTINUOUS IMPROVEMENT [4, “Otonil” (Autumn­like) is painted by 15­year old Eugenia Esteban from Argentina. (The International Museum of Children’s Art, Oslo.) At the time of writing, we are in one of the most critical periods for the international community. The Gulf crisis can inflict deep wounds on the world. How deep, only time will tell. To those who work in the oil industry, the Gulf crisis has also provided another reminder of how important energy particularly oil is to the world. Again we have ­ ­ to realise that, as an oil company, we must always be able to cope with uncertainty. Looking back, 1990 was one of the most encouraging years since the Second World War. Developments in the East and the integration process in Europe make 1990 a year that will forever command an important place in history. But changes take place very quickly, and it was easier to be an optimist at the end of 1989 than at the close of 1990. For Statoil, 1990 was a good year. Once again we met our goals for safe and effi cient operations. Our financial position was further strengthened. We improved our standing in domestic and international markets. New, important projects were ap proved and are in progress. Efforts to develop further our competence and consoli date our organisation continued. At the same time, important steps were taken to wards greater internationalisation of the Group, notably through a strategic alliance with BP. Also the 1990s will be marked by energy issues globally, regionally and nation ­ ally. But above all, the relationships between the need for energy and the global environmental challenges will be put even more clearly on the agenda. We work in an industry that must find many of the answers to these challenges. A key concept in the oil business is long­term strategy. We always have to think in decades. To realise our vision for the Statoil group, we still have to work persist ently to raise our overall expertise and improve our position with our customers. Statoil’s challenge in the 1990s is to be an organisation that is willing to undergo continuous improvement and where ability flourishes. HaraidNorvik Statoil’s Annual Report and Accounts 1990

THE MARKET High oil prices, especially in the second half of the year, meant high feed stock prices for the petrochemical business. This also influenced prices of the intermediate products, ethylene and propylene. Margins were tight throughout the year.

In addition to the traditional petrochemical processing activity based on natural gas liquids, the business unit is also planning activities using natural gas as feedstock. In 1990 plans were developed for a methanol plant based on gas from the Heidrun field. Statoil’s board decided in spring 1990 to build and operate such a plant in cooperation with the US company, Conoco. The business unit was in 1990 responsible for developing Statoil’s plans for production of the petrol additive MTBE. Statoils Annual Report and Accounts 1990

This Government’s Direct Financial Involvement (GDFI) total was made up from Statoil’s share of just over 124 million barrels and the GDFI share of some 140 million barrels. Total gas sales in 1990 were about 4,940 million standard cubic metres, of which GDFI amounted to 1,885 million. Total reserves discovered through explo ration in 1990 were about 450 million barrels of oil. The State’s overall share of this is 220 milli on barrels. Just over 70 billion standard cubic metres of natural gas were discovered, of which the State’s overall share is 31 billion standard cubic metres. Total exploration costs were NOK 1,460 million. Recoverable reserves proven offshore Norway consist of 13.5 billion barrels of oil and 2,800 billion standard cubic metres gas. The State’s overall share represents 6.4 billion bar rels of oil and 1,678 billion standard cubic me tres gas respectively. Operating profit from the State’s overall involvement was NOK 26.7 billion in 1990, against NOK 16.4 billion in 1989. Investments related to the State’s overall offshore involvement were NOK 13.5 billion, an increase of NOK 1.5 billion on 1989. Just over 70 per cent of the investments in 1990 were related to the Government’s Direct Financial Involvement. The most important investment projects were the Oseberg, Sleipner East and Draugen field developments and the Zeepipe gas pipeline system. Stato,l s Anneal Report and Accounts 1990

    RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT In the 1990s and beyond technology will as sume greater importance for Statoil’s business activities. Since the reorganisation and consoli dation in 1989 therefore, R&D activities in 1990 have been going through a period of greater commitment. A new research centre in Trond heim will be ready to move into by the begin ning of 1994. Exploration and production technology is a key area for Statoil’s R&D efforts. Work on re servoir simulation, drilling and completion, and multiphase flow research, provide a base for fur ther development aimed at extended-reach or horizontal wells. Care of the environment is an important con sideration in drilling and well operations, parti cularly the development of environmentally friendly drilling mud systems. A dedicated commitment to multiphase re STEEL PIPE search over several years produced results which contributed to the decision to build the CABLE ORROSION PROTECTI Troll gas process plant on shore. This technolo THERMAL INSULATION gy underpins efforts to develop new acreage, By means of multj-djscjpljnan skills R&D has such as on Tromsøflaket, and to extend the use developed a thermalfiowline, which is both of existing infrastructure in the North Sea. environmentally sound and economical in use. Research efforts are being redoubled in the refining and petrochemicals fields. Development of environmentally sound fuels has high priority. New methods for testing and analysing refinery catalysts allow selection of more economical and technically enhanced catalysts for Statoil’s refineries. Through the project for conversion of natural gas to middle distillates, work is going on to ex ploit gas for production of more environmentally compatible fuels, particularly diesel. Similar processes are under development for generation of petrochemical feedstock and petrol additives, such as MTBE, from natural gas. In the longer term the potential for future chemical conversion of methane to fuels and petrochemical intermediates is being consid ered. Multi-disciplinary skills can produce valuable results. One example is the development of a thermal flowline which counteracts the forma tion of wax and hydrate during multiphase trans portation of oil and gas. This flowline was devel oped on the basis of multiphase flow expertise, materials engineering skills, and the need to transfer untreated wellfiow over long distances. The method, which is not only economical in operation but also environmentally friendly, is known as Induction Through Thermal Insulation (ITTI). Patents are pending in many countries.
