Arnt Even Bøe


Arnt Even Bøe is one of Norway’s most experienced oil and energy journalists with decades of his career in Stavanger Aftenblad, where he also had senior positions as commentator and editorial writer. He is the author of the book “Time is Money” where he interviews the last living oil pioneers government officials about what happened between 1962 and 1972 when the Norwegian oil regime was established. The book documents how a small group of people laid the foundation for the successful Norwegian model in an industry few people had little or any knowledge about.


On the latest tour in 2016 Arnt Even Bøe had a lecture about the Norwegian oil boom from the beginning and the passengers got to know more about the people who laid the foundation for the Norwegian oil and gas industry.
