Our story

Established in 2004, Rystad Energy has built the most consistent dataset for global energy sources.


Jarand Rystad founded Rystad Energy in 2004, filling a significant gap in the market. He saw a need for a consistent and comprehensive dataset for all oil and gas fields globally.

The ambition was that the sum of the field-level data should add up to global production levels, and that long-term forecasts should be logical – both economically and from a natural science perspective. Moreover, the dataset should be convenient to use, including a wide range of options to slice and dice the data in all dimensions.

Since then, Rystad Energy has become a world-leading analysis and consultancy company, offering services and analysis across the full spectrum of energy sources and with a presence in all corners of the globe. Today, we track all energy sources, from production to consumption, providing reliable data, projections and advice to enable our clients to predict and plan for the future. Our goal is to contribute to a responsible energy transition, in which energy is provided to all while also achieving ambitious climate goals.
