Statoil ASA: Recommendation from Statoil's nomination committee

The nomination committee in Statoil (OSE:STL, NYSE:STO) recommends that the
company's corporate assembly elects Wenche Agerup as a new member of
Statoil's board of directors.

The nomination committee in Statoil recommends that Wenche Agerup is elected
as new member of the board. Catherine Hughes withdrew from the Statoil board
with effect from 19 April 2015. The nomination committee's search for a new,
female board member as a replacement for Hughes is now finalised, and the
nomination committee proposes that a supplementary election to the board is
held in the corporate assembly meeting 20 August 2015.

Wenche Agerup was the Executive Vice President for Corporate Staffs and the
General Counsel of Norsk Hydro ASA from 2010 to 31 December 2014. She has
held various executive roles in Hydro since 1997, including within the
company's M&A-activities, the business area Alumina, Bauxite and Energy, as a
plant manager at Hydro's metal plant in Årdal and as a project director for a
Joint Venture in Australia where Hydro cooperated with the Australian listed
company UMC. Though her work in Hydro, Agerup has developed a significant
business and strategic competence. Agerup is currently a board member in Oslo
Børs Holding VPS ASA/Oslo Børs ASA (the Oslo Stock Exchange) and the seismic
company TGS, and has competence and experience within corporate governance.

Wenche Agerup is a Norwegian citizen.

The election to Statoil's board of directors takes place in the company's
corporate assembly meeting, Thursday 20 August 2015. It is proposed that the
election enters into effect from 21 August 2015, until the ordinary election
of shareholder-representatives to the board of directors in 2016.
