The National Archives of Norway/The Norwegian Oil and Gas Archives (NOGA)
The National Archives of Norway is an independent government authority under the Ministry of Culture. The main tasks of the National Archives and the regional state archives are to preserve archive material from state institutions, to make this material available for use to the public, to control the work on records administration within the ministries, regional and county authorities and to contribute to the preservation of private archives
Located at the Regional State Archive of Stavanger is the Norwegian Oil and Gas Archives. This is a collection of about 5000 shelf meters of archival records from both governmental bodies and private companies and organizations. The largest collection is that of the Statoil-Archive, measuring about 1300 shelf meters. Other archives include those of ExxonMobil, Shell, ConocoPhillips, Bp, Eni, SAFE, Norwegian Oil and Gas, the Petroleum Wives Club, The National Petroleum Directorate etc.
The archives document the start and the development of the Norwegian Oil and Gas industry from a variety of sources. The largest part of the collection dates from the period 1970-1990. However, the collection also holds material from the late 19th century, up to electronic records from today.
