Kåre Willoch is awarded the Gullkronen Honour Award 2020 for securing diversity on the Norwegian continental shelf and huge value creation for Norway through his work as a parliamentarian and prime minister. His initiatives ensured healthy competition and a large number of players on the shelf. He established the State’s Direct Financial Interest in oil and gas activity (known as SDØE in Norwegian), which has brought enormous income to Norway over several decades. And last but not least, he laid down the groundwork for what is popularly known as the Petroleum Fund – now worth $1 trillion – which safeguards Norway’s oil wealth for future generations.
