The ICEM and Norwegian oil and gas producer Statoil signed an agreement in July 1998 in coordination with Norsk Olje og Petrokjemisk Fagforbund (NOPEF), the Norwegian trade union.
It was the ICEM's first Global Agreement. It covers all trade union rights, health, safety and environmental commitments, and provides for internal training programs for such. The agreement was renewed and improved upon in March 2001, and further updated and strengthened in August 2003 and June 2005.
