The Norwegian Petroleum Directorate (NPD) has made changes to its management group.
Under the move the NPD has beefed up its management numbers and moved from two to three management levels.
Four directors report to the director general Bente Nyland, while 12 assistant directors make up the NPD’s operative management.
Director general Bente Nyland said: “The most important reason for the changes is that we want to improve management capacity. The NPD’s tasks have increased in recent years, and there are more of us.
“More than 10 years have passed since we were the first government agency to introduce a flat, team-based organisation. We will largely be keeping this structure.”
The four directors who will report directly to director general Bente Nyland are Sissel Eriksen (Exploration), Ingrid Sølvberg (Development and operations), Kjell Agnar Dragvik (Analysis and framework) and Inger Lise Strømme (Data management and organisation).
The 12 assistant directors make up the NPD’s operative management. They are Stig-Morten Knutsen (NPD Harstad), Oddny Svendsen, Wenche Tjelta Johansen, Tomas Mørch, Kjetil Aasoldsen, Kalmar Ildstad, Øyvind Kirkhus, Arne Holhjem, Kirsti Veggeland, Gunnar Mån Østebø and Maria Juul.
The last position, assistant director for systems development and ICT, has not yet been filled.
