We're Equinor, an international energy company committed to long-term value creation in a low-carbon future. We are 21,000 committed colleagues developing oil, gas, wind and solar energy in around 30 countries worldwide. We’re the largest oil and gas operator in Norway, one of the world’s largest offshore operators, and a growing force in renewables.
- Equinor produces around 2 million barrels of oil equivalent every day - Providing renewable power to 1 million European homes - 21,000 employees across 30 countries
What do we do?
Oil and gas Equinor produces around 2 million barrels of oil equivalent every day and is responsible for about 70 percent of overall Norwegian oil and gas production. In 2021, Equinor’s activity outside Norway accounted for around one third of the company’s total oil and gas production, and this is expected to increase. The Peregrino field in Brazil and the Mariner field in the UK are our largest operatorships outside Norway.
Renewable energy Equinor provides more than one million European homes with renewable power from offshore wind farms in the United Kingdom and Germany. We are the operator of the Sheringham Shoal, Dudgeon and Hywind Scotland offshore wind farms. Projects currently under development include Empire Wind and Beacon Wind (US), and Dogger Bank (UK), which will be the world’s largest offshore wind farm. By 2030, we plan to have grown our installed net renewables capacity from 2021’s 0.7 GW to 12-16 GW. Two-thirds of this capacity will be within offshore wind.
Technology development Equinor’s strong ability to apply new technologies and digital solutions constitutes a competitive advantage. Digital technology is a key enabler for us to develop into a leading company in the energy transition. Our ambition is to allocate 40% of our research and development capital towards renewables and low-carbon solutions by 2025.
