Statoil and International Business
Statoil recently had its fifth gas discovery off the coast of Tanzania, on December 6th 2013. During a visit to the Tanzania office the IB team learned more about the significance of these findings, and the long-term processes that are initiated. We have also heard about how it is to look for gas at more than 2300 meters deep, the manner in which Statoil creates increased opportunities for higher education in Tanzania, and how it is for Statoil to do business here. Although Statoil faces both challenges and opportunities doing business in Tanzania, their overall perception is summarized by this statement: "There's never been a better time for good ideas"
In addition to being one of our partners, Statoil is also aiding us with information in regards to the report. We thank Statoil for a successful cooperation!
