Major upgrade of the FactPages

05/02/2013 The Petroleum register was last week included in the FactPages. This is the major new function together with a new search tool in the right upper corner.

The Petroleum register is maintained by the Norwegian Petroleum Directorate (NPD) according to its own Regulations relating to the Petroleum register. According to the Regulations, the licensee must give written notice to the registrar if changes occur in the licence.

The new reports connected to the tabs Licence and TUF:

  • "Licence" -> "Page view" -> "Petroleum register"
  • "Licence" -> "Table view" -> "Petroleum register" -> "Overview"
  • "Licence" -> "Table view" -> "Petroleum register" -> "Licencees"
  • "Licence" -> "Table view" -> "Petroleum register" -> "Operators"
  • "Licence" -> "Table view" -> "Petroleum register" -> "Notifications"
  • "TUF" -> "Page view" -> "Petroleum register"
  • "TUF" -> "Table view" -> "Petroleum register" -> "Overview"
  • "TUF" -> "Table view" -> "Petroleum register" -> "Licencees"
  • "TUF" -> "Table view" -> "Petroleum register" -> "Operators"
  • "TUF" -> "Table view" -> "Petroleum register" -> "Notifications"


Changes of attributes:

  1. "Company" -> "Table view" -> "All", attribute "Group" (tag name "cmpGroup") is set to "NA" (not applicable). This is due to lack of quality on this attribute.
  2. "Seismic" -> "Overview", attribute "NPDID for survey" (tag name "seaNpdidSurvey2"). The tag name is corrected to "seaNpdidSurvey" according to the description in "Attributes".
