LONDON, February 2​nd​, 2021​: As part of the development of its National Data Repository (NDR), the UK’s Oil and Gas Authority (OGA) has selected Osokey to provide cloud-native data services, ensuring enhanced access for new and legacy data. Osokey, the UK-based subsurface data specialist will deliver its cloud-based system during 2021 to enable access to a wide range of
petroleum-related information including wellbores and geophysical surveys. In addition, Osokey’s technology will optimise the storage of petroleum-related information hosted within the OGA’s cloud systems and deliver efficient data reporting workflows to assist further data disclosure.
Incorporating Osokey’s cloud technology into the OGA’s data ecosystem is a significant transformational step, with the aim of improving user access to large volumes of legacy data. The intention is to increase the reported volume of data as a national asset and support the OGA strategy. For the OGA contract, Osokey has chosen to collaborate with Moveout Data Seismic Services, which will provide quality control and services for ingestion of physical media to ensure robust and accurate legacy data submissions.
“We are delighted the OGA has chosen Osokey to provide new services to the National Data Repository. The whole team is looking forward to delivering improved data access to support the rapidly evolving needs of the energy sector.” said Joseph Nicholson, Osokey’s chief operating officer.
Osokey’s technology will also provide the OGA platform with data visualisation and data sharing capabilities to support a range of activities, ranging from exploration to carbon storage site assessment in order to assist the UK in realising its net zero objectives.
“This Osokey product will provide an accessible and intuitive data portal for geoscientists,” concludes Nicholson. “Our mission is to simplify data access and promote collaboration. The combination of Moveout’s expertise and Osokey’s subsurface cloud technology is a great fit to provide a tape to cloud service that can further develop the OGA’s NDR.”
