Records of interest

Capturing the Energy is interested in collecting the following records from operating companies:

  • High level records about the decision making process of developing and managing a field and its installations;
  • Records concerning the technical construction of installations and how they operated; and
  • Records about the staff that ran these installations, the working conditions they experienced and the impact the industry has had on worker’s families, local communities and the country as a whole.

Involvement in Capturing the Energy can take place at any stage of the asset's lifecycle, but the decommissioning process acts as a natural trigger for this process as records are no longer in current use. 


Our list of records provides a basic summary of the types of records we would be interested in collecting, but the best way for you to get a full idea of what we would collect for a specific field or installation is to arrange for us to carry out a record survey.

We may then arrange a documentation project to transfer the records to the archive for long-term preservation, or the company can complete a self-service submission to Capturing the Energy. See the process pages for more information.
