The Danish North Sea agreement has been placed under a scrutiny since 2011 which is now finalised. The agreement is found balanced and fair. Maersk Oil is happy that the scrutiny is now over.

“It is important to us that this Government as well has confirmed that the agreement between the Maersk Group and the Daily state is balanced and lasting,” Maersk Oil CEO, Jakob Bo Thomasen, tells ShippingWatch.
