We are proud about informing that our CEO, Jarand Rystad, has last night received the 2015 Norwegian Petroleum Society Award.
The Norwegian Petroleum Society (NPF) committee Tuesday night awarded the 2015 NPF award to Jarand Rystad. He is the right one, said Chairman Egil Bergsager during the award ceremony at the Oljeindustripolitisk seminar in Sandefjord, Norway.
“The strong oil price drop is the biggest challenge for the oil industry right now. Investments in the industry have an effect for many years. It is therefore specifically important to have qualified assessments of the long-term oil price development and industry fluctuations. Market development in different parts of the world as well as technology trends are also core elements for investment decisions. Jarand Rystad has within short time managed to build up a strong and internationally recognized research house, with an impressive database and highly advanced analytical tools. This gives him a solid understanding into the fundamental factors that are crucial for future developments,” says Bergsager.
The core reason for Jarand Rystad to receive this year’s NPF award is that he has been, with great knowledge, active in the public discussion through various media and presentations. His efforts are specifically valuable as he is not afraid to engage in discussions with concluding thoughts that may differ from the mainstream view of less insightful analysis. The foundation of Jarand Rystad’s opinions are always fact based.
Jarand Rystad founded Rystad Energy, an independent oil and gas research and consulting company, in 2004. The company has its headquarters in Oslo, with further research teams in Asia, and offices in Stavanger, Great Britain (London), USA (New York and Houston), Russia (Moscow), Brazil (Rio de Janeiro) and representatives for Africa and South-East Asia.
