OSLO (Reuters) – The Norwegian government is seeking approval from parliament to divest the state’s stakes in Aker Solutions <AKES.OL>, Akastor <AKAS.OL>, Aker Offshore Wind <AOW-ME.OL> and Aker Carbon Capture <ACC-ME.OL>, the industry ministry said on Tuesday.

“We are in no hurry to sell the government’s shares in these companies but are open to doing so if we can get a good price,” Industry Minister Iselin Nyboe said in a statement.
