Norway is taken to Court for granting ten exploration licenses in the Arctic Circle to Statoil, Chevron, Lukoil, and ConocoPhillips.

Since 2014, Norway has a constitutional commitment to environmental sustainability for future generations, which environmental groups like Greenpeace argue is violated by further oil and gas exploration.

Norway is a signatory to the Paris agreement on climate change and by granting licenses it is accused of promoting fossil fuels.
