Welcome to Stavanger

The Stavanger region is Norway’s third largest conurbation with a population of about 470 000 inhabitants. The city itself has a population of 132 000.The Greater Stavanger region hosts a versatile and dynamic business community known for its innovation and high levels of wealth generation. An international focus combined with active business networking all contribute towards the region’s economic growth and future prosperity.

During the 1960s, exploration drilling for oil in the North Sea changed Stavanger dramatically. The city is located close to the North Sea and its excellent harbour, combined with airline connections, made it well-placed to take advantage of the increase in activity.Following the rise during the mid 1970s of oil and gas exploration and production as Stavanger’s most important industrial sector, the business and cultural climate altered considerably.Equinor is the largest oil company in the Stavanger region and has its corporate headquarters located in Forus, a suburb lying between the neighbouring cities of Sandnes and Stavanger

Norway’s most productive region
Stavanger is well known for its large oil and gas sector, as well as a hub for many energy companies.The Stavanger region has for years been Norway’s most successful economic region. Business enterprises are characterised not only by rapid growth but also by their greater profitability.Stavanger’s success in the competitive global market place is perhaps its most distinguishing attribute. The business community has a well-honed sensitivity to global economic fluctuations and has proven to be highly adaptable.
