    Nylund will assume his new responsibilities on January 1, 2014 and report to Helge Lund, CEO. Nylund's office location will be Stavanger. He succeeds  Øystein Michelsen, who has been appointed country manager in Tanzania.

    Nylund is currently senior vice president, Processing and Manufacturing in Marketing, Processing and Renewable Energy (MPR), a role he has held since 2009.

    He joined Statoil in 1987 with the transfer of the operatorship of Statfjord from Mobil. He has a background from a range of operational and leadership positions. He has been platform manager at Gullfaks, operations manager at Statfjord and senior vice president for Statfjord operations and Operations West in DPN.

    "Arne Sigve Nylund is an experienced leader from both upstream and downstream operations in Statoil. His deep understanding of both the onshore and offshore parts of Statoil makes him a very strong fit for the challenging position as head of DPN," says Statoil CEO Helge Lund.

    "The Norwegian Continental Shelf is the backbone of Statoil's activities, and I look forward to having Arne Sigve as part of the team realizing the full NCS potential over the years to come," Lund added.

    Nylund has a bachelor’s degree in engineering from the Stavanger Technical College, a bachelor’s in operations management from University of Stavanger, and a business economist degree from Norwegian School of Economics.
