The petroleum industry’s most important meeting place
Through network building, professional activities and provision of information, we will make a significant contribution to ensuring that the Norwegian oil and gas industry is one of the world’s leading business communities.
Our products are high-quality information, meetings and conferences. Our strength lies in a valuable and virtually complete industry network, committed officers and highly-regarded knowledge of the sector.
All our activities are based on a combination of voluntary effort and paid work. Much of the value creation is achieved through the activities of volunteers.
We are neutral, and address everyone interested in Norwegian petroleum operations. Our supporters are officers elected from the membership and professionals in the oil and gas industry.
A good reputation is essential if we are to win trust and recognition as the industry’s most important meeting place. Our values base will ensure that everyone who acts on behalf of the NPF behaves in an ethically robust manner.
Our values base is rooted in three main principles:
We have an inclusive working culture. All our employees are equals, and must be respected for their abilities. Bullying or discrimination is unacceptable whatever the form it takes.
Good business practice
Our employees, our sub-contractors and our elected officials must observe good business practice. This means that they must not seek personal advantages which conflict with our interests as a society.
We will conduct our activities in a financially professional manner, and maintain a financial strength which allows us to fulfil our obligations to the staff. Profits over and above that level will be applied to developing the society for the benefit of members.
We will ensure that the good health, safety and environmental standards maintained in the petroleum industry also apply to our employees and elected officers.
