About Us

The Capturing the Energy project aims to ensure that important records about the UK offshore oil and gas industry are retained for the future. The purpose of this to:

  • document the industry’s achievements 
  • increase awareness of its importance, and 
  • assess its economic and social impact.

We want to collect and preserve documents, photos and audio/video material that will inspire the next generation.

Operators, supply chain companies, industry professional bodies and individuals who have been involved in the industry in any capacity can contribute to the development of this unique resource.
