The Oil Companies in Norway are privately run. The Norwegian Government is a stock holder in these companies and uses the incomes from them to fund the state run retirement system. These companies are listed on the the US Stock Exchanges. Companies owned and run by world governments are never listed on these exchanges or other world stock exchanges. Currently, Norway is debating the withdrawal of their holdings in oil exploration companies. In the 1990s the Nordic countries all began changing their Socialist based economies to Capitalist based economies. The facts speak for themselves. Obviously, Dems like you continue to be duped by their phobia of researching the facts.
