Stavanger- The oil capital of Norway

Stavanger – The oil capital of Norway –

Two worlds exist side by side in Stavanger, Norway’s fourth-largest city on the country’s south-western coast.

One world is that of the oil and gas industry, which accounted for much of the economic development in the past decades. It has earned Stavanger the nickname ‘oil capital’ – although the city’s government prefers the broader title ‘energy capital’.
