The UK National Data Repository (NDR) is now available for use by UKCS licensee companies. During this pilot phase Regulatory (licensee) users will be able to access their own data as well as data that has been entitled to their company or disclosed by the OGA. They will also be able to fulfil their regulatory obligations by submitting data to the NDR, as well as facilitating data access and sharing of confidential data amongst joint venture groups using secure functionality within the NDR.
CDA operates the NDR on behalf of the OGA. Its launch is the culmination of many months of work to transfer CDA’s collection of well and seismic data from its UKOilandGasData platform, in support of the OGA’s objectives to make industry data available as freely as possible for the benefit of the UK oil and gas industry.
The full public launch of the NDR is expected to take place towards the end of March.
Further information about the NDR can be found on the OGA’s website.
