|OSLO Wholesale Atlanta Falcons Shirts , Nov. 11 (Xinhua) -- Norwegian oil and gas company Statoil said on Wednesday it would increase its commitment to reduce CO2 emissions on the Norwegian continental shelf by 2020 as it is already close to achieving its original goal.
Since 2008, Statoil has had the aim of reducing CO2 emissions on the Norwegian continental shelf by up to 800,000 tonnes by 2020. As the goal is close to being achieved four years ahead of time, it will increase the target by 50 percent to 1.2 million tonnes, the company said in a statement.
"In Norway, we produce oil and gas with half of the CO2 emissions per unit of output compared to the global industry average. By aiming even higher now, we are reinforcing our leading role in the coming years as a low-emission producer of oil and gas Wholesale Atlanta Falcons Jerseys ," Statoil's executive vice president Arne Sigve Nylund was quoted as saying.
In 2008, Norway's petroleum industry, led by Konkraft, a forum which comprises various companies and organizations with a focus on competitiveness of the Norwegian continental shelf, agreed on a goal of improved energy efficiency equivalent to 1 million tonnes of CO2 between 2008 and 2020.

"For several years now, we have been working hard at managing our energy use and improving energy efficiency on all our installations Wholesale Falcons Hats , which means that we have already practically achieved our Konkraft target," Nylund said.

ERBIL, Iraq, Sept. 15 (Xinhua) -- The parliament of the semi-autonomous region of Kurdistan on Friday approved the independence referendum to be held on Sept. 25.
All the 65 lawmakers attending the session of the 111-seat regional parliament voted in favor of holding the referendum on the independence of the Kurdish region and the disputed areas.
The parliament also decided to invite relevant parties, including Kurdistan's Independent High Elections and Referendum Commission, to conduct the referendum.
According to Tariq Jowahar, parliament media advisor Cheap Atlanta Falcons Hats , the session was chaired by the deputy speaker, as Speaker Yousif Mohammed Sadiq did not attend the session since his Gorran Movement is boycotting the session along with the Kurdistan Islamic Group.
Kaka Bashar, a Kurdish lawmaker from the Patriotic Union of Kurdistan (PUK), said he regretted that some of the lawmakers boycotted the parliament session, particularly the Gorran Movement, and hoped they will take part in the coming session.
Bahar Mahmoud, head of Gorran's parliamentary bloc Cheap Atlanta Falcons Hoodies , said the parliamentary session is "illegal."
"The session is illegal and a violation to the internal parliament law, as the session must be approved by the parliament's presidency which comprises the speaker and his deputy, in addition to the secretary of the parliament," she told Xinhua.
Mahmoud also revealed that Sadiq was prevented from entering the regional capital city of Erbil.
"This session was held according to the wishes of the two main parties and not according to the desire of parliament," she said, referring to the Kurdistan Democratic Party (KDP) headed by the regional President Masoud Barzani, and the PUK with Iraqi President Fuad Masoum as one of its leading figures.
Horman Hama Sharif Cheap Atlanta Falcons Shirts , a spokesman for the Kurdistan Islamic Group, echoed Mahmoud's opinion in a statement.
"We do not participate in this session because we consider it illegal, because the legitimate speaker is not aware of the session, as well as the parliament secretary, and this is an exploitation of the parliament as an institution for the parties and personal purposes," he said.
