First yearly update of quality-assured geochemical database for the North Sea
The geochemical database will be updated twice per year with geochemical data from wells that have recently been released in Diskos.
The NPD will now make an update of the database available, including wells released on the second half of 2021.
The update contains a total of 579 new samples from 14 wells.
Access to a quality-secured database gives all the players on the Norwegian continental shelf a good foundation for conducting geochemical evaluations as a basis for better understanding of the petroleum systems.
The database is available via the NPD’s Factpages
