ONS is bringing together government ministers and executives from the major oil companies.

The Offshore Northern Seas Foundation, ONS, which organizes the ONS exhibition in Stavanger, is this year taking a new initiative by arranging the first ONS Summit, focusing on energy-related geopolitical issues.

ONS has invited government ministers from energy nations and top executives from the major energy companies to discuss key global issues. The ONS Summit will be held on Monday 27. and Tuesday 28. August.

-These two groups of decision-makers are each in their own way in a position to influence the future of the energy industry. It is unusual that so many of them get to meet and debate together, says Oddveig Haga, ONS Summit Project Director in a press release.

Participants include Ola Borten Moe, Jonas Gahr Støre, Maxime Verhagen, Carl Bildt, Maria van der Hoeven, Elisabeth Dipuo Peters, Joe Oteng-Adjei, Helge Lund, Peter Voser, Ryan Lance and Abdulaziz F. Al-Khayyal.
