European countries are looking to Norway as they scramble to find alternatives to Russian energy in response to Moscow’s invasion of Ukraine.

In May, Norway’s Petroleum & Energy Minister Terje Aasland told Upstream the country could increase exports to Europe to replace Russian gas and the following month the European Union and Norway announced they would be “strengthening energy co-operation”.
