Edison entered the Norwegian Continental Shelf (NCS) in 2006 and established its Stavanger office in 2007 through Edison International Norway Branch. On January 1, 2015, Edison International Norway Branch became Edison Norge AS ( www.edison-norge.no). Through organic and inorganic growth, Edison Norge reached a balanced portfolio of 18 licenses through license round awards, exploration farm-ins and acquisitions. The exploration activity has resulted in three discoveries: the discoveries of Zidane East and West in 2010/2012 and Skarfjell in 2012. These discoveries are in the development phase and will contribute with their productions to the company targets.

Edison is also part of the Polarled Gas transportation project that will allow transportation of gas from Mid Norway including the Dvalin (previously Zidane) production to the European market. In 2015, the first well (2/11-11) was drilled as Operator and it was a key step in building experience and knowledge in the NCS and Emergency Response Organization.

In October of 2016, the Plan for Development and Operation (PDO) of the Dvalin gas field, previously known as Zidane, was submitted to the authorities. First gas is expected in 2020. Edison (10%) is partner in the JV of the license together with Petoro (35%) and the operator DEA Norge AS (55%).

Edison International was awarded four exploration licenses in the Danish sector of the North Sea in the 7th Licensing Round launched in 2014. After completing all the procedures and receiving the award ratified by the Danish Parliament, the joint ventures started the proposed work program in 2016.
