The region is known for being a meeting place for the energy cluster.

Stavanger is the center for both the majority of oil companies located in Norway and the oil field service industry serving the Norwegian Continental Shelf (NCS). The region hosts one of the largest and most compact groups of energy companies and service companies in the world, with more than 35 operators/licensees with interests on the NCS. In addition, more than 300 oilfield service companies are also located here.

More than 50 000 people are directly employed in the energy businesses.
