Statoil eyes more shale JVs with Chesapeake
STAVANGER, Norway, April 14
STAVANGER, Norway, April 14 (Reuters) - Norway's Statoil (STL.OL) said it was interested in shale gas ventures beyond North America with its partner Chesapeake Energy (CHK.N).
"We don't have specific plans, we are looking at the global map," Executive Vice President Rune Bjoernson told reporters at an oil and gas seminar about his company's approach to shale gas projects with Chesapeake.
Chesapeake and Statoil are already in a Marcellus shale joint venture in the United States.
