"Arne Sigve Nylund is recognised for his strong interpersonal skills. He works well with internal as well as external stakeholders. He has experience from driving challenging projects and change agendas, and has demonstrated ability to create trust and strong results. The Norwegian Continental Shelf is the backbone of Statoil's activities, and I look forward to having Arne Sigve as part of the team realising the full NCS potential over the years to come," Lund adds.

"DPN is a very important business area in Statoil. The years to come will be both exciting and demanding. Our ability to adapt, improve and change is a prerequisite for future success. I am really looking forward to again have the opportunity to work together with all the competent and dedicated people in DPN to deliver on our goals and contribute to Statoil's improvement agenda," says Arne Sigve Nylund.
