System provides gateway to streamline industry’s access to subsurface data

Friday, November 8, 2013

Common Data Access (CDA), the Oil & Gas UK subsidiary responsible for managing and providing the subsurface data which underpins the industry''s exploration and production activities on the UK Continental Shelf (UKCS), is streamlining access to its services by launching UKOilandGasData.com. The new interface provides users with a single gateway to all the information previously sourced separately from DEAL, (Digital Energy Atlas and Library) the online resource for information and data on the UKCS, and from CDA''s Well and Seismic DataStores.

Malcolm Fleming, CDA''s chief executive, said: ''The decision to unify the DataStore and DEAL systems into one web portal, UKOilandGasData.com, has been made to give industry the best and most comprehensive tool for sourcing quality information that contributes to their understanding of the subsurface. It is designed to deliver faster and therefore more cost-effective access to quality data on UKCS wells, seismic surveys, production licences and infrastructure. This is all the more important as the industry sharpens its focus to ensure that the maturing basin of the UKCS continues to be productive beyond 2050.

''Independent research has shown that a greater understanding of subsurface data permits companies to describe more accurately the oil and gas resource in place and to identify more successfully the means to recover it, thereby increasing the value of their assets. By introducing a step change in the delivery of data services, our aim is to help companies reduce geological uncertainty to reduce development risk and increase their chances of exploration or production success.'' detailing thesize, position and characterization of faults.
