17/08/2022 Data from the analysis project that Earth Science Analytics AS carried out on assignment from the Norwegian Petroleum Directorate (NPD) in 2021 is now available for download.

As described in the news item "New technology unlocks new insight from old wells" (July 2021), the NPD has now published data from its project to analyse results from dry wells in the North Sea. Data about reservoir properties in a total of 545 wells has been published, and the available data includes porosity, water saturation, lithology and which sections of the well are classified as potentially hydrocarbon-bearing.

The data will be available as a zip file, and has also been made available on a per-well basis in Diskos.
