The country covers more than 148,000 square miles but has a population of just 5 million people, making it the second least densely populated country in Europe. Norway is bordered by Sweden, Finland and Russia. The country’s capital city is Olso. Norway is the second-largest net exporter of gas and the seventh-largest exporter of oil in the world.

Norway is the second largest net exporter of gas, and the seventh largest exporter of oil in the world. Accordingly, it needs world class infrastructure. The Puma terminal in Norway, Alexela Sløvåg, provides state of the art storage and transit facilities for gasoline and other light oil products.
We completed modernisation and conversion of the facility during 2012, incorporating the very best monitoring and operating technologies across the facility to ensure high environmental and safety standards in line with ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 requirements. Site operations are monitored in real time 24-hours a day, from a state of the art control centre.
With a 15m draft jetty, which can accommodate vessels up to 100,000DWT, our new facility will process cargo from Norway’s offshore fields and from Russia, where our storage facility at Murmansk provides strategic links to the north Russian rail network.
Our total storage capacity now stands at 95,100m³.

Norway’s major cities, including the capital Oslo, Bergen, Stavanger and Trondheim are rich in cultural and recreational resources such as museums, galleries, retail and entertainment. However, the country is probably most noted for its dramatic scenery – including the world famous fjords along its western coastline and the far northern subarctic areas – a popular destination for those wishing to view the ‘Northern lights’.
