Germany's DEA will invest NOK 20 billion (EUR 2.08 billion) in the Norwegian Shelf, announced new group CEO Maria Moræus Hanssen recently, reports Norwegian media Sysla. The investment will run until 2021.

Recently, it emerged that DEA was teaming up with German competitor Wintershall and this merger will be finalized during 2018. Wintershall will also invest NOK 20 billion in Norway over coming years.

"Now we'll almost get a new company which will be a major player and which can invest more and take larger jobs. That must be an advantage both for partners and Norwegian authorities," she tells the media.

The large investments will go to projects under development such as Maria Skarfjell and Aasta Hansteen and the further development of the Brage field.
