Like so many other major global players in the oil industry, Norway's Statoil was hit hard by the all-time low energy prices and, in particular, the rock-bottom oil prices. According to the annual report from the state-owned Norwegian oil unit, the net operating income declined to USD 1.74 billion in 2015 against USD 12.80 billion in 2014.

The adjusted net result for the full year came to USD 9.00 billion, a 43 percent setback from USD 15.90 billion in 2014.
