NORWAY'S STATOIL SHARPENS FOCUS ON U.S. MARKET FOR OIL AND GAS
Norway's Den norske stats oljeselskap AS sees the U.S. as a major market for its North Sea production. Statoil Pres. Harald Norvik told the Norwegian-American Chamber of Commerce in New York his company is still working on plans to ship liquefied natural gas to the U.S. Statoil anticipates increased oil and gas exports and is seeking wider trading for its Oseberg field crude. "We believe the U.S. will be an attractive market, and the 1990s will be an attractive time to enter that market,"
