“The collaboration we are announcing today with Statoil brings together two leading technology players, and allows us to leverage our global network of engineers and technologists to make a profound impact on the development of energy solutions that reduce environmental impacts. Through this collaboration, we hope to be a model for the rest of our industry, and to inspire thinking, creativity and innovation in addressing the challenges of more sustainable energy.”
“The challenge of achieving more efficient and sustainable energy production is too large for one entity to address alone,” said Eldar Sætre, president and CEO of Statoil.
“The private sector has a responsibility to leverage its skills and expertise to contribute to the development of new solutions. Collaboration is a key component to achieving important positive change. This initiative with GE is a good example of an innovative approach to accelerate innovation and help address the energy needs of today and for the future,” Sætre said.
