Mr. Maloney will discuss how Statoil got to where they are today in North America. Although Statoil is a world leading top 50 Fortune oil and gas company, its role in the U.S, has grown just over the last decade. He will describe his journey from starting their U.S. operations in Houston a decade ago to building a large deep water portfolio in the Gulf of Mexico, as well as large scale operations onshore in the Marcellus, Eagle Ford and Bakken shale plays. He will also talk about the important role of cultivating deep relationships within Statoil and with its partners, as well as developing key capabilities through strategic acquisitions, like Brigham Exploration. Mr. Maloney will discuss current and emerging challenges to their business around pricing, transportation, regulation and geopolitical issues, and he will end by touching upon Statoil’s high value growth opportunities and increased efficiency. Dr. Mittal will discuss the important role of an organization's strategic decision making process in its success.
