Other (financial) information provided by the organisation:

Statoil keeps a liaison office in Brussels. The total costs for the office in 2013 were EUR 2 750 000. This covers everything: staff salaries, rental of office premises, utilities and maintenance, travel costs, memberships and so forth.

The mission of the office is threefold:
• represent the company’s interests vis-à-vis the institutions of the European Union
• engage the head office on identifying Europe-wide business issues and in devising corporate strategy in key European markets
• keep the company informed and up to date with regard to EU policy initiatives, and provide advice with regard to how to influence European legislation

The costs range provided above represents an estimate of the resources that have been devoted to the fulfillment of each of these three goals, which amounted to roughly one third of the total budget that the company allocated to the Brussels office.
