Norway will be on its last third of natural gas reserves by 2035, much of it in the Arctic, and almost all of it destined for the EU market, the country’s Minister of Petroleum and Energy told EurActiv in an interview. Tord Lien said production would stop once the reserves were gone.
He also discussed Norway’s successful renewables sector, climate change, and trade – but was less forthcoming on what a post-Brexit UK could learn from his non-EU country.
Tord Lien is Norway’s Minister of Petroleum and Energy. Norway is a major supplier of natural gas to the EU, which views it as a bridge fuel towards a low-carbon future and an important part of its efforts to bolster the bloc’s energy security.
Lien spoke to Deputy News Editor James Crisp. You can listen to the SoundCloud clip below, or read the transcript on EurActiv.
