Petoro is a company that is wholly owned by the Government of Norway. Established in 2001, it manages the Government's portfolio—collectively called State's Direct Financial Interest (SDFI)—of exploration and production licenses for petroleum and natural gas on the Norwegian continental shelf. 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.
