Oil & Gas Archive


All areas are represented in our holdings, including major operating companies, businesses in the supply chain, trade unions, trade associations and smaller collections of personal papers from individuals.

The University’s Special Collections Centre’s Oil and Gas Industry Factsheet details the resources held in the Oil & Gas Archive and how to access the collections. 

The University acts as a physical repository for deposited material, but also as a virtual hub for information and resources relating to the industry held elsewhere: please see the other resources for research and online resources pages for more information.
