Petoro, a company wholly owned by the state of Norway, manages Norway's portfolio of exploration and production licenses for petroleum and natural gas on the Norwegian continental shelf. This portfolio is collectively called State's Direct Financial Interest (SDFI). The company also has a control function surveying Statoil's production on behalf of the government. Petoro is not an operator of any fields and does not directly own the licenses.

Petoro was established in 2001 to manage SDFI, which was previously managed by Statoil. As of 1 January 2006 the value of the portfolio was NOK 875 billion. In 2005, the company produced 1.2 million barrels (190,000 m3) of oil equivalents per day and had an operating income of NOK 113 billion. In 2008, the average number of barrels of oil equivalents produced was 1.199 million.[2]
