ONS 2014 exceeded expectations, according to President and CEO, Leif Johan Sevland.

Commenting on the success, Sevland said: “We have succeeded in creating a forum for discussion on future solutions. The conference has been revitalised. Top presenters from all over the world have shared their insight more freely and bravely than ever before.

“There is always room for improvement, but today we are grateful and happy that ONS 2014 has been such a success.”


  • 1380 exhibitors
  • 80,000+ attendees
  • Revitalised conference, with 700 delegates on average per day
  • 60,000+ trips made on the free transportation system
  • Youth were a new and extra focus on the future of the industry
  • ONS Summit Meeting gathered 60 top government leaders and senior corporate executives from 22 countries.

In an interview for Fifth Ring, Cecilia Rehn, editor at Oilfield Technology, explains why she believes ONS and the Norwegian energy sector is unique, referring to the environmental focus which ONS delivers and the opportunities for exploration in the Arctic. Although some may have suggested that 'the boom is over', Rehn believes there is an optimistic feeling at ONS, particularly with the opening up of the east of the Barents Sea.
