Please continue to use factweb@npd.no to give your comments or report error either on data or on the system.

For those who are downloading data from the Factpages

NPD prioritize to keep the "Table view" part of the FactPages as backward compatible as possible. For those of you who are downloading data using XML or CSV:

  1. Four tag names in "Company" have been deleted (see below for more details)
  2. No existing tags have changed names.
  3. No existing reports (URL's to the report server) have changed name or have been deleted, but some reports have more attributes.

Changes and additions


Wellbore

  • In "Wellbore"  - > "Page view" -> "Other" a new menu item called "All" has been added. "All" lists all wellbores that are not "Exploration" or "Development".
  • Two previous bugs that occurred when using the "File geodatabase" (see shortcut for geographical datasets in Factpages) have been corrected. The URL and type attributes are now correct.

Survey

  • Two new attributes have been included for a Survey: "Midpoint" and "Vessel".  See the attribute descriptions for more details. These two attributes are included in all "Table" reports except "Coordinates" and "Last update".
  • In the release 19.6.2014, the menu entry "Category" was introduced. This is stating whether seismic, electromagnetic or other tool is used. "Category" is now added as a new attribute to the following "Table" reports: "Overview", "Pending", "Planned", "Ongoing", "Pause" and "Cancelled". See attribute description for "Survey" for more details.

  • In "Page view" it is now possible to see the mortgages from the Petroleum register together with other information about the license.

  • In "Table view" -> "Work obligations" a new attribute, "Category", is introduced.
