Posi­ti­ve net­to balan­ce in 2009

The Nor­we­gi­an public bud­get for Spits­ber­gen was posi­ti­ve in 2009, for the first time in 33 years. Main­ly tax inco­me from major com­pa­nies have con­tri­bu­ted to the inco­me. The mining com­pa­ny Store Nor­ske is the lar­gest tax pay­er (278 mil­li­on Kro­ner), fol­lo­wed by the oil and gas platt­form ser­vice com­pa­ny Seadrill Nor­ge (92 mil­lio­nen Kro­ner). In 2009, the net­to trans­fer was 33 mil­li­on Kro­ner from Spits­ber­gen to Nor­way. In com­pa­ri­son: in 2007, Spits­ber­gen was sub­si­di­sed with 310 mil­li­on Kro­ner, the figu­re for 2008 is 347 mil­li­ons.
