Downstream pollution of upstream numbers

  • Because of downstream numbers in Statoil’s upstream country-by-country report, the report is not transparent.
  • Reporting only the purchase of goods and services, and not all costs, creates the illusion that profits from the extraction activities (upstream) are higher than they actually were.
  • Statoil’s report is so misleading that Statoil should republish with correct numbers for upstream activities.
