Filmer

I løpet av årene har det blitt produsert og publisert filmer fra Oljearkivet. Herunder faller også de 6 filmene som ble produsert i anledning av Necst-prosjektet om energi og miljø.

En tur ut til Ocean Traveler i Nordsjøen ca. 1966-1967

Nå er muligheten her: se den unike filmen som dokumenterer oljearbeidernes liv på Ocean Traveler i Nordsjøen på midten av 1960-tallet. Ocean Traveler var en boreplattform bygget i USA og brukt i Mexicogulfen. I 1966 ble den overført av Esso til de første leteboringene på norsk sokkel i Nordsjøen, etter at nederlenderne hadde gjort Groningen-funnet i 1959. Plattformen gjorde 16. juli 1966 et begrenset funn i Nordsjøen, i en blokk som langt senere ble funnsted for Balderfeltet. Filmen varer like over en time og er i farger. Norsk olje- og gassarkiv har arkivene etter Ocean Traveler.

Undervisningsfilmer produsert i forbindelse med NECST-prosjektet 2015

Norsk Olje- og Gassarkiv deltok i 2015 i prosjektet NECST: "A new energy culture, sustainability and territories". NECST er et internasjonalt samarbeid som skal øke europeiske skoleelever mellom 15 og 17 år sine kunnskaper om energi og miljø. Tiltaket er et Erasmus+-prosjekt som er koordinert av den italienske organisasjonen Fondazione Eni Enrico Mattei.

Deltakerne er fra Nederland, Kroatia, Italia og Norge. Fra Norge er det Hammerfest videregående skole og Norsk olje- og gassarkiv ved Statsarkivet i Stavanger som deltar.

I begynnelsen av september 2015 var vi vertskap for prosjektdeltakerne i Stavanger. En del av opplegget handler om å utvikle materiale for internett-basert opplæring. Norsk olje- og gassarkiv har bidratt med å lage undervisningsvideoer om norsk petroleumsvirksomhet, geologi og oljeleting samt sikkerhetsarbeid på kontinentalsokkelen.

Hver av videoene varer omtrent en halvtime og skal brukes i videregående skoler. Materialet består av ulike typer filmklipp og animasjoner. Sentrale arkivdokumenter har fått en relativt bred plass. Det hele er satt sammen til en helhetlig presentasjon utformet av våre medarbeidere.

The Norwegian Oil and Gas History - Early years

The oil and gas sector is fundamental to the Norwegian society and economy. This video lesson provides a historical overview of the development on the Norwegian continental shelf, since the first drops of oil was found on Norwegian soil almost 50 years ago until appr. 1985. This is the pioneering period of the petroleum sector in Norway where much of the framework was laid for the development of this industry.

The Norwegian Continental Shelf

How does oil and gas occur in nature and how can we extract it? Senior Biostratigrapher Robert Williams from the Norwegian Petroleum Directorate shares his insight on these complicated aspects in a simple manner. He also shows the enormous collection of drilling samples performed on the Norwegian Continental Shelf, all stored in the basement of the NPD. Through interviews, drawings, animations and film cuttings he and Torkel Thime from the Norwegian Oil and Gas Archives shed light on this complicated theme.

Safety in the oil and gas industry on the Norwegian continental shelf

Improvements in health and safety on Norwegian petroleum installations during five decades

What were the main causes for accidents on oil rigs working on the Norwegian continental shelf, and how has the accident rate been improved for the past 50 years? This is the question that this video-lesson addresses. The video lesson explains what risks existed for major incidents, gives an account on the amount of incidents involving single individuals. The lesson further on deals with risk as a company issue and safety culture at all levels. Major incidents as driving forces for improvement work (the Alexander Kielland accident is the most serious accident on the Norwegian continental shelf – March 27th 1980 where 123 people were killed) are also pointed out. The video explains how coordinated legislation works as a firm basis for continuous improvement efforts.
Through film cuttings and archival material this video lesson, in addition to the interview, give a real time experience of the safety challenges connected with the petroleum work.

The SPA Film Festival on Archives and Records Management
2016 ICA (International Council on Archives) Congress in Seoul, Korea

As we created 3 films for the NESCT-project in the autumn of 2015 we decided to contribute to the SPA film festival with one of those films. Our topic is the useage of archives in documenting the petroleum history of Norway, so this fit the brief of the contest. Originally they were too long for the 10 minute rule, so we chose one of them and adapted it for this purpose. The shorter film's title is Accidents, Safety and Archives.

Oljemessen ONS i Stavanger 2016

Oljearkivet samarbeidet med Oljemuseet og fikk laget til et seminar på ONS (Offshore Northern Seas)-messen i Stavanger 2016. Her ble det laget invitasjonsvideo på både norsk og engelsk med flere kjente fjes fra bransjen.

NECST-undervisningsfilmer 2017

NECST: "A new energy culture, sustainability and territories". NECST er et internasjonalt samarbeid som skal øke europeiske skoleelever mellom 15 og 17 år sine kunnskaper om energi og miljø. Tiltaket er et Erasmus+-prosjekt som er koordinert av den italienske organisasjonen Fondazione Eni Enrico Mattei.

Norsk olje- og gassarkiv produserte også i 2017 filmer til dette prosjektet. Den første ut er laget med opptak fra Arve Johnsens foredrag fra ONS 2016. Nummer to inneholder opptak fra Brage W. Johansens foredrag om å bruke norsk oljeteknologi i romfarten. Som nummer tre stiller tidligere CEO av Norwegian Contractors, Jan Moksnes med sitt foredrag om betongteknologi. 

We talk about the earth  ̶  we should have been talking about the ocean

The video “We talk about the earth  ̶  we should have been talking about the ocean” tells the story of the Norwegian oil and gas adventure and how this industry has changed Norwegian society. It shows how oil and gas has laid a foundation for further development of new industries and a robust welfare state for future generations.

​The lecture is given by Arve Johnsen, who was the first CEO of Statoil from the beginning in 1972 until 1988. He is considered one of the most important and influential industrial leaders in modern Norway. Arve Johnsen is a member of the advisory board of The Norwegian Oil and Gas Archives. The original lecture was given at the ONS-2016 Conference (http://www.ons.no). The ONS conference is one of world’s largest oil and gas conferences with appr. 90.000 visitors.

​The lecture was held at the session “Archives and history – analyzing times of transition” hosted by The Norwegian Oil and Gas Archives and the Norwegian Petroleum Museum.

​The main theme for the ONS-2016 conference was “Transition”. The original title of Johnsen’s lecture was “The Norwegian Petroleum History and Archives – Politics, Technology and Transition”. The video shows excerpts from this lecture, combined with records from The Norwegian Oil and Gas Archives.

Arve Johnsen – as presented in the video:

Arve Johnsen was Statoil's first Chief Executive Officer (1972-1988). From being the only employee at the company's office in Stavanger, Statoil developed into a company of international dimensions. Statoil was the leading company in the Norwegian oil industry. Johnsen holds an MBA and law degree. Previously, he was an active politician, representing the Labour party. He was Secretary of State within the Ministry of Industry from 1971 to 1972. From 1988 Johnsen has been an oil and gas adviser to the UN from 1991 to 1996. Since 1991 he has run his own law practice in Oslo. He has held several directorships, including Chairman of various company boards.

Arve Johnsens lecture – transcribed:

So today I will reflect on actions, from actions to archives. We are being moved into the archives during the first 50 years. Towards the end of my presentation I will give you an indication of what is my opinion about what is going to happen over the remaining part of this century and way into the next one.

​By combining politics, technology, geology and research we will be in this industry for generations. There were ten oil commandments or petroleum commandments made in 1971/1972 by a decision in the Norwegian Parliament. And the fifth commandment reads like this, and is often forgotten. It says that the Industrial committee would support that flaring of exploitery gas on the Norwegian Continental shelf must not be accepted except during brief periods of testing. No other petroleum nation globally has ever had such a commandment. And each time when we discuss climate and climate change and the attitude towards as clean production as possible we should include this commandment. It is there and it is going to be there for ever.

Now then, with these reflections and with the sea as the background, what is it that we can say for certain after these 50 years which we did not know anything about 50 years ago. Events and activities in the Norwegian petroleum sector over the last 50 years. They have for ever, underline forever, changed Norwegian lifestyle and the global role of the country.

Gradually the petroleum reserves are produced and transformed into petro-crowns (Norwegian currency) our new and everlasting, financial resource and wealth.

It is like this, you know. We talk about the earth  ̶  we should have been talking about the ocean. Two thirds of this globe is water. And what is the situation as per today as far as the Norwegian continental shelf is concerned. It is a fascinating picture. This area is six times as large as the land area. And we have been given the authority to have a look and develop this area for eternity. What kind of a nation! What kind of a perspective! And so far we have drilled in the southern parts, and all together some 1500 wells, 100 of them up in the Barents Sea, only 100. And we can only assume what is likely to happen when we have, let us say, hundred times two or hundred times ten. There will be further discoveries and further developments.

But the most important principle is that the right to these natural resources belongs to the state, it belongs to us. And then, on basis of that, there has been petroleum acts passed, the last one in 1996. And then we took the concessionary system related to waterfalls from 1917 and applied that to the continental shelf. That means that the ownership is never transferred, it is the right to explore and develop, transport and use for a limited time.

Now then, between 1969 when Ekofisk was made, and 1972, Norwegian authorities decided to establish a state owned company. I have always been for that. Because I believe, and I know, I know for certain, that national companies they are more interested in the interest of the country than any other counties’ companies. We should have them, because we need competition. But you may see, and you have already seen that some companies withdraw from Norway continental shelf in our time because they don’t find it profitable enough. Short term, but medium and long term, in my opinion, it is going to be the most profitable and stable place where to be.

Considerations for the environment have always been an integrated part of our petroleum activity. Emissions are regulated by the petroleum act, the CO2 tax act, and the special tax act. There is no place on this globe where the companies pay that much in form of taxes related to emissions as in Norway. And each ton or cubic metre produced here contains as far as emissions are concerned roughly 50 percent of the global average. And each time when someone says we have to sort of gradually phase out this activity, I say no thank you. If anything is going to be phased out, according to CO2-emissions it ought to be in this country as the least relevant place and the last country where to stop producing oil and gas. That is my opinion. And it is going to be that to my dying day.

Now then, by this description I wanted to tell you about the perspectives how, why and in which manner, did the Norwegian petroleum story evolve over these 50 years.

And the speed at which the technical, economic, social, environmental and political development has taken place within this industry has been exceptional. Nothing similar has ever before happened in Norwegian history. An important part of the work with these archives will be to be the collective memory that can give the future generations a good basis for relevant understanding of the facts.

In July 1969 Neil Armstrong landed on the moon with the space ship Apollo. And later that year Phillips Petroleum Company discovered oil and gas on the Norwegian continental shelf. When Neil Armstrong stepped down on the surface of the moon he said: “That is one small step for a man, one giant leap forward for mankind”. When platform manager Ed Seaburn called Ed (Alfred) Crump in Stavanger 19. September 1969 he said (citation): “Please be seated.” The answer from Crump was: “I now am sitting”. Then came the following message: “Crump, I have oil all over the North Sea, but the well is under control and I have a number of samples that I will bring ashore.”

In Norway, however, it was the start of an exceptional development that has led to an eternal wealth on more than 7000 billion Norwegian kroner in the petroleum fund as per today. If you take five million that we have. If you take 7 divided by 5, that is 1,4. Behind each of you here sitting here, there is a wealth fund of 1,4 million Norwegian kroner (appr. 150.000 euros). Behind every inhabitant, this is going to be administered long term for eternity.

Norwegian oil and gas technology saves an electric car and may be the first to kill alien life. 

​The Norwegian oil and gas archives made this film for the Necst-project in 2017. It focuses on the presentation held by the CEO of Zaptec, Brage W. Johansen for the ONS in Stavanger, Norway in 2016. The title was: From the North Sea to Space, and it shows how Norwegian oil-related technology might be used for drilling in space. 

​The lecture was held at the session “Archives and history – analyzing times of transition” hosted by The Norwegian Oil and Gas Archives and the Norwegian Petroleum Museum.
The main theme for the ONS-2016 conference was “Transition”.

The remaking of Norwegian concrete technology.
