North SeaThe first move to set up an oil and gas museum in Aberdeen is being launched.

Bosses from major energy companies are getting round the table to discuss how the unique archive could be created.

It would ensure the history of the North Sea industry was preserved for future generations.

Those attending the Capturing Energy conference at Aberdeen University tomorrow will set targets for the project and examine how to harness involvement from companies right across the sector.

The aim is to create a permanent base in Aberdeen for documents and artefacts dating back 40 years to when "black gold" was first discovered.

As well as helping research, hopes are high the archive will attract new blood into the industry.

Tomorrow's conference is chaired by former energy minister Brian Wilson.

One of the key speakers will be Dr Miles Oglethorpe, manager of architecture and industry for the Royal Commission on Historical Monuments of Scotland.
