Diskos contracts to CGG

The Norwegian Petroleum Directorate (NPD) and the oil companies in the Diskos group have awarded contracts for software and operation of the Diskos databases to CGG.

The contracts apply for the period 2015 to 2020.

The contract award is a result of a comprehensive public procurement process, in which companies from the entire EEA were invited to pre-qualify. Separate contracts were awarded for the Seismic, Well and Production modules. CGG was successful in submitting the best offer for all three modules.

Diskos is a shared solution for storing and distributing seismic data, well data and production data from the Norwegian shelf. The database was first launched in 1995 as a cooperative effort between the NPD, Statoil, Norsk Hydro and Saga Petroleum. Today, 56 oil companies are part of the Diskos collaboration, in addition to a number of service companies and all the Norwegian universities.  

The objective of Diskos is to streamline data management for both the authorities and the oil companies through joint electronic storage and distribution of such data. The solution safeguards Norwegian regulatory requirements for confidentiality, statutory access to public information and the companies' reporting obligation. The databases also ensure long-term storage and maintenance of such data.

Diskos currently holds nearly 600 terabytes of digital seismic, well and production data from the Norwegian shelf. This volume of data is expected to grow significantly in the years to come. The data in the Diskos databases is available through a secure high-speed communications network.

Together with its partners Kadme and Evry, CGG will utilise existing solutions as well as specially adapted software. The data will be stored in Green Mountain (a progressive, environmentally-friendly solution for storing large volumes of data) on the island of Rennesøy in Rogaland County.

The contract is worth several hundred million kroner, but the value will ultimately depend on how much data is uploaded to and downloaded from the solution. The contract will yield considerable savings for the oil companies and the authorities.
