OSLO--Norway's oil and gas companies expect to reduce exploration investment sharply on the year in 2016, an official survey showed Tuesday, as oil prices show no sign of picking up.
Oil companies operating in Norway--Western Europe's largest oil producer and exporter--expect investment to drop to 192.8 billion kroner ($22.30 billion), down 10% from an all-time high last year, according to Statistics Norway's fourth-quarter survey.
Investments are set to drop in exploration, existing fields, and pipeline transport, the agency said, while spending is set to increase slightly in the development of new fields, onshore activity, and the shutdown and removal of old platforms.
