For Borehole part of the Data Specification

  • Uffe LARSEN

    Just for information

    A group of people from  TNO from the Netherlands, The Norwegian Petroleum Directorate,  BGS, The Department of Energy and Climate Change (also UK)  and  Common Data Access, CDA (also UK),  The Danish Energy Agency and the Geological Survey of Denmark and Greenland  is currently working on the common problems and challenges related to the data management of hydrocarbon exploration and production.

    One of the things we are working with is an extension to the borehole purpose list.  We have not agreed on the terms and the definitions yet but the preliminary list with terms that we want to add look like this:

    • Injection
    • storage observation
    • hydrocarbon storage
    • scientific research
    • salt production
    • storage
    • hydrocarbon development
    • wildcat
    • CO2 injection
    • CO2 disposal
    • shallow gas
    • pilot
