Probably no government downsale in Equinor

Gunnar S. Eskeland: A downsell in Equinor will probably not be possible for the government.

The Equinor ownership is decisive for our customers in Europe, for other oil companies and for a safe cleanup on the continental shelf.

The Norwegian state has done an amazing job to create predictability and security for home, work and investments. Still, oil companies and German consumers prick up their ears nervously every time there is talk about a possible shut down in Norway, Gunnar S. Eskeland writes.
