Lofoten, Vesterålen and Senja will no longer bu open for new oil and gas development ahead of 2021 – one of the impacts of the new Norwegian government platform, which has now welcomed the Liberal Party (Venstre) after previously being made up of a coalition of the Conservative Party (Høyre) and right-wing Progress Party (Fremskrittspartiet). The new government was announced Sunday.
"Over the 2017-2021 period, we will not be opening up to petroleum companies or impact assessments with reference to the Petroleum Act for the waters off Lofoten, Vesterålen or Senja, nor will we launch petroleum activities off Jan Mayen, the polar front, Skagerrak or the Møre fields," reads a declaration from the new government.
