We want to understand the data needs of the service industry
Do you work in the oil and gas service industry? Do you have ideas on how data from the Norwegian continental shelf (NCS) can be used smarter – and how to increase coordination? Take part in a survey and give us your input.
With the aid of this survey, the Norwegian Petroleum Directorate (NPD) wants to chart how we can contribute to increased value creation on the NCS by making better use of data.
In our role as stewards of data from the NCS, we want to find answers to a number of questions we find important.
To secure input and to better understand the needs, we are turning to the service industry – to those who use the data we provide.
We need user insight
Some of the questions included in the survey:
How can smarter use of data increase value creation on the NCS?
What kinds of technology should be used?
How can technology contribute to the best possible utilisation of data?
How can the NPD and the supplier industry interact more and better?
What kind of data does your company need – and what does it not need?
How can we share the data – in the easiest possible way?
“We recently had a workshop with representatives from the licensees on the NCS and Norwegian Oil and Gas. The meeting was very successful and provided valuable input. Now we’re looking forward to hearing from the service industry,” says an enthusiastic Petter Dischington, project coordinator in the NPD.
“The insights we are collecting are invaluable as we prepare to draw up a new strategy for data management on the NCS,” he adds.

There are vast proven gas resources on the Norwegian shelf which are currently without development plans. Much of this gas is located in tight reservoirs – which makes it difficult to produce.
The Norwegian Petroleum Directorate (NPD) has conducted a mapping of gas resources that, for various reasons, have yet to be developed. Several of these discoveries could be produced in a manner that is profitable from a socio-economic perspective.
