Moving offices

Since Elf moved to Stavanger in 1967, it had leased a base area and office building from Torolf Smedvig and Norsea at Strømsteinen. The discovery of Frigg and the transfer of administrative functions from Oslo soon made these premises too small.

Smedvig also owned a site at Dusavik north of Stavanger, which he planned to turn into a base. Elf leased part of this area, which Smedvig undertook to level and equip with a new building. These premises were ready for occupation around midsummer in 1972.

When Elf moved into the new facility in Dusavik, its staff had grown to 20 people. Combining offices and warehousing, the building covered 1 300 square metres. However, the high level of activity meant that it was not long before this also proved too small and planning started for yet another new building. An annex was also completed in 1975.
