The International Tax Conference is celebrating its 30th anniversary since the inaugural event back in 1990. The organising committee has now presented the program and participants can expect an update on fiscal trends – both on economic terms as well with a more policy approach – and issues internationally as well within the Norwegian petroleum industry.

There is a renewed interest for exploration in North West Europe, although the North Sea is now in a more mature phase of its lifecycle. Major challenges are reducing unit operating costs to maximise remaining production and decommissioning existing structures. Both in a way that meets environmental standards and is cost effective from the standpoint of investors and governments.

The 2019 conference will address these challenges together with issues such as:

  • Coping with uncertainty from a tax risk management perspective
  • Environmental taxes in light of the energy transition
  • Recent developments in state aid cases
  • Oil & gas tax trends generally

The 30th International Petroleum Tax Conference provides a unique opportunity to hear from acknowledged experts in the fiscal and energy field on current industry trends and challenges.

Visit the Norwegian Petroleum Society (NPF) website for the full program and registration.
