The IMR oceanograpers are not saboteurs

In the latest number of the weekly Teknisk ukeblad the Institute of Marine Research is accused of sabotaging the petroleum debate.


It is claimed that the warnings concerning petroleum expolitation given by the IMR lack sceintific proof. The editorial says " the problem to some of the researchers at the IMR was that the numbers from the model in question were a bit too low".

In their answer to the claimed sabotage Tore Nepstad and Ole Arve Misund, respectively management director and research director, emphasize that all advices given by the IMR are based on scientifically research.
