Young Energy Conference 2021


Welcome to Young Energy Conference 2021 in Stavanger

Norwegian oil industry towards 2030

Stay safe!

The Norwegian Petroleum Society (NPF) strives to make everyone feel safe at our conferences.
At this event, we will ensure sufficient distance between the seats, have antibac available and offer face masks for those who wants it.

NPF follow the situation closely and we adapt our events according to regulations given by the authorities. We remind you to stay at home in case of illness, and to test yourself if you have any symptoms.

WELCOME to this year’s event for young professionals in the oil and gas industry!

The conference is a nationwide event for young people aged 35 years or younger working in the oil and gas industry. The conference is a popular event, and alternates location between Stavanger and Oslo.

NPF would like to provide young people with an arena where they can meet with other likeminded professionals with the purpose of networking, whilst listening to presentations held by experts within their own respective fields focusing on the most relevant trends, challenges and opportunities within the oil and gas industry today.

The event is aimed at giving you as a young professional in the energy industry a chance to look beyond your day to day activities through giving valuable insights into key topics of the industry and getting to know other young professionals in the industry that might inspire you today or prove valuable in the future.

You can expect participants from all parts of the energy business, so be prepared to learn and network to broaden your skillset and meet new people through the day.

On behalf of the committee I welcome you to Young Energy 2021!

Remember that you have to be employed in the energy business and be under 35 to be eligible to participate


Best regards
