Public electronic mail journal (OEP)

According to Section 6 of the (Norwegian) Freedom of Information Act, all government agencies are required to make their mail journals available to the public on the internet. OEP is a joint publishing service for these mail journals, which will be available at all times to anyone with internet access.

In OEP you can search for documents from all government agencies that participate in OEP, and you can request access. Your requests are sent directly to the organisation responsible for the journal entry. Requests you send to the Norwegian Petroleum Directorate will be treated as petitions for access, and you will receive a reply from us.
