MY NORWAY TRIP DIARY: 5th DAY - A VISIT TO STAVANGER (OIL CAPITAL OF NORWAY)

by Antonio Gil October. 15, 2014 3219 views

Stavanger is today considered the center of the oil industry in Norway and is one of Europe's energy capitals and is often called the oil capital. The city's rapid population growth in the late 1900s was primarily a result of Norway's booming offshore oil industry. Today the oil industry is a key industry in the Stavanger region and the city is widely referred to as the Oil Capital of Norway.
