Norsk Hydro: Loading of alumina at Alunorte resumes

The Pará State Environmental Secreteriate (SEMA) has reinstated Alunorte's
environmental operational license for loading of alumina at its port, Vila do
Conde, with effect as of 3. April 2014. This results in the resumption of
loading of alumina with immediate effect.

The resumption of alumina loading is a result of a constructive process
between Alunorte and SEMA.

The production of alumina at Alunorte has not been affected by the temporary
halt in the port loading operations.

Certain statements included within this announcement contain forward-looking
information, including, without limitation, those relating to (a) forecasts,
projections and estimates, (b) statements of management's plans, objectives
and strategies for Hydro, such as planned expansions, investments or other
projects, (c) targeted production volumes and costs, capacities or rates,
start up costs, cost reductions and profit objectives, (d) various
expectations about future developments in Hydro's markets, particularly
prices, supply and demand and competition, (e) results of operations, (f)
margins, (g) growth rates, (h) risk management, as well as (i) statements
preceded by "expected", "scheduled", "targeted", "planned", "proposed",

Although we believe that the expectations reflected in such forward-looking
statements are reasonable, these forward-looking statements are based on a
number of assumptions and forecasts that, by their nature, involve risk and
uncertainty. Various factors could cause our actual results to differ
materially from those projected in a forward-looking statement or affect the
extent to which a particular projection is realized. Factors that could cause
these differences include, but are not limited to: our continued ability to
reposition and restructure our upstream and downstream aluminium business;
changes in availability and cost of energy and raw materials; global supply
and demand for aluminium and aluminium products; world economic growth,
including rates of inflation and industrial production; changes in the
relative value of currencies and the value of commodity contracts; trends in
Hydro's key markets and competition; and legislative, regulatory and
political factors.

No assurance can be given that such expectations will prove to have been
correct. Hydro disclaims any obligation to update or revise any forward
looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or
otherwise.

This information is subject of the disclosure requirements pursuant to section
5-12 of the Norwegian Securities Trading Act.
