FactPages have been upgraded

The upgrade comprises:

  1. Last date updated
    This new concept has been added for Wellbore, Licence, BAA, Field, Discovery and Facility. Two new attributes "Date main level updated" and "Date all updated" have been introduced.

    These two attributes will start being updated from 23.5.2012. Changes before this date will not be displayed (blank).

    See "Attributes" for more information.

  2. New reports
    a) Licence - Table view - Work obligations
    b) Field -Table view - Investments
    c) Field - Table view - Description
