App for all mobile phones

The Norwegian Petroleum Facts app developed by the NPD and the Ministry of Petroleum and Energy for use on iPhones/iPads is now also available for Android and WindowsPhone mobiles.

Launched at Stavanger’s ONS oil show last August, the app has already been downloaded by 5 500 users and is accessible for free in the App Store via http://www.oilfacts.no/.

The new Android version is downloadable from the Play shop, while the one for WindowsPhone can be found at Marketplace.

Based on data from the NPD’s online fact pages and maps, the app provides information about fields, production licences, companies, production and active exploration wells on the NCS.

Users can also access news stories from the NPD and the ministry.

The map function shows fields and active exploration wells, all linked to relevant background information. A search function is also provided.

In addition comes an analysis section which allows users to filter and sort data themselves. They can be stored as favourites to simplify later updating. Graphs can also be generated.

Users can chose between English and Norwegian versions. The app has been developed in collaboration with the Applaud company.
