The companies that operate on the Norwegian shelf have access to extensive amounts of well data in our database. The directorate shares information in order for the players to analyse and make use the well data.
Well data comprises raw data and interpreted data, cf. Section 85 of the Regulations relating to the Petroleum Act.
Raw data is normally available two years after the well is completed. Wells in relinquished production licences are the exception, where information is released in connection with relinquishment.
Well information that is interpreted or processed by other parties than the directorate will become available 20 years after the data is analysed.
The FactPages contain an overview over exploration and development wells on the Norwegian Shelf. For most of these wells, key attributes are published and can be downloaded. There is a more extensive database for exploration wells more than two years old, the Well Data Summary Sheet (WDSS).
