Archivists, researchers and experts came together for a special event to discuss the importance of recording the history of the energy industry.

The seminar brought together 40 experts to discuss practical and professional issues involved in documenting activities in the oil and gas industry. The seminar was developed to mark the fourth anniversary of the founding of Capturing the Energy, a project co-led by the University of Aberdeen, Special Libraries & Archives department, to work with companies to ensure the management and eventual archiving of their key records for the benefit of current research and future generations.

Speakers included George Mackenzie, Keeper of the Records of Scotland, Professor Alex Kemp of the University of Aberdeen, Siobhán Convery, Head of Special Libraries and Archives, David Powell, Business Archives Council Scotland and John Holt, Researcher. The seminar was followed by a reception and a film night where a selection of films from the National Library of Scotland’s Scottish Screen Archive, depicting the history of the oil and gas industry, were screened.

Comperes for the night were Brian Nixon, Chief Executive of Decommissioning North Sea and Professor John Hume from the University of Ulster. The evening was well attended and attendees included the Lord Provost of Aberdeen and Lewis MacDonald MSP.
