Statoil is an international energy company with operations in over 35 countries. Building on 40 years of experience from oil and gas production on the Norwegian continental shelf, we are committed to accommodating the world’s energy needs in a responsible manner, applying technology and creating innovative business solutions.
We are proud to be Headline Sponsor of Debating Matters, because we believe in making a positive contribution to the development of young people who will shape the future of our world. The success of Statoil is down to individuals with the ability and desire to think critically and creatively, and with the skills and determination to achieve remarkable results. It is individuals like these who hold the key to a successful future for society as a whole. The Debating Matters competition offers a unique opportunity to young thinkers to discuss the big issues of our time - such as climate, the environment and energy - that are important both to Statoil and to society, in a rational, fact based, cordial way. It provides a training ground where young people can develop first class reasoning and communication skills that will enable them to contribute in a range of settings later on.
