The company mainly focuses on innovation in exploration and production to recover valuable resources, find new sources, and extend the production life of existing fields. The main ambition of Equinor is to become a global offshore wind major, drawing on our extensive offshore experience to drive the industry forward. Wind power is a key enabler in the world’s energy transition.

Equinor is also investing in solar projects as well as innovative solar technology companies to show how solar power can provide scalable and profitable growth opportunities.

Equinor trades in petroleum products, methanol, natural gas, power, and emission allowances all over the world, trading over two million barrels of crude oil and condensate (light oil) per day.

The main crude oil market of Equinor is northwest Europe, but it also sells volumes to North America and Asia. Seaborne transportation of crude, product, gas liquids, and LNG volumes involves more than 4300 voyages worldwide per year and moves over 100 million tonnes annually. Equinor operates a number of terminals and refineries in and outside Norway.

In April 2021, Equinor and SSE Thermal planned to jointly develop two first-of-a-kind, low-carbon power stations in the UK’s Humber region, comprising one of the UK’s first power stations with carbon capture and storage (CCS) technology, and the world’s first 100% hydrogen-fuelled power station.

The company was incorporated in September 1972 and is headquartered in Stavanger, Norway.
