Hemla is a company specialized in developing natural resources worldwide. We unlock and monetize hydrocarbons through an open business model. Being a Norwegian company, our model is politically neutral.

Created as result of the constantly changing oil and gas industry, our model  builds on Norway’s inspiration and success in the 60s and 70s of establishing a sustainable oil and gas industry. 

It is a unique and balanced model that includes end-to-end structuring of the value chain from upstream exploration and production all the way to the final off-taker, all the while promoting local ownership and capacity building through operatorship, transfer of “know-how” and technology.   (click here for more on the Hemla Model)

We allow resource owners, technology owners, investors and off-takers to expand their roles in the projects to align their interest. We provide solutions to each element of the value chain and we “design” them in such a way that they fit the project needs and not a pre-defined company structure.

Hemla is focused on value creation through application of cutting edge and smart technology but we always strike the right balance between innovations and proven technology. Our team’s experience and expertise combined with our partners enable us to undertake the role of the Operator or Project Manager.

We are active in the upstream sector of oil and gas, where we bring the Norwegian experience in order to maximize resource recovery.  Further, special consideration is given to resource management such as gas to LNG or to power to minimize flaring. 

Through our model, we have the ability to reach a broader range of partners and deliver suitable and customized solutions. That is reflected in the partners and clients we have worked with which include industry leading companies and Governments, Ministries and state-owned companies alike. 

Starting with 2005, Hemla 's management team has been involved in different companies and projects worldwide and thus has  a strong experience  both from operations within oil and gas, as well as management and financing.
