Technical subjects


  • The Kielland legacy
    A major accident is the most-feared scenario. The biggest in Norway’s oil history happened on 27 March 1980, when Alexander L Kielland capsized in the North Sea with the loss of 123 lives.
  • Never another major accident
    Norway became an oil nation in the winter of 1969 with the discovery of Ekofisk. The five decades since then have yielded major successes – and major accidents. In 2020, the 40th anniversary of the biggest of these will be commemorated.
