Singapore proffered Friday its services to be a trading center for Norway's oil and gas exports
Singapore proffered Friday its services to be a trading center for Norway's oil and gas exports to North Asia, as both nations used a visit by Norway's King Harald to develop stronger commercial ties.

"Do consider Singapore as an extension of Norway in Asia," he stated. "Singapore offers an excellent location to supply energy resources to major Asian customers like China and Japan, two of the biggest consumers of petroleum products?.
