PetroData cleans up for Norsk Hydro

Norsk Hydro has selected PetroData to clean up data from 470 Norwegian wells prior to loading to PetroBank.

PetroData has signed a contract for a major well log data quality project for Norsk Hydro ASA. Data from 470 wells will be quality controlled and reported into Diskos PetroBank, the Norwegian national data repository, according to reporting requirements specified by the Norwegian Petroleum Directorate.


PetroData will carry out the project along with long-term partners PGS Reservoir Consultants AS and Robertson Research.


Original log tapes, films and reports will be retrieved from Hydro’s tape store run by GeoTjenester AS in Notodden. All well log data will be quality controlled and loaded into PetroBank. The raw log data will reside as archive objects in PetroBank whereas selected log curves will be loaded live in the PetroBank Well Data Module. The original tapes will be destroyed upon completion of the project.


Hydro project manager Jan Reidar Johnsen said, “Completing the NPD reporting is a high priority project for Hydro. We have set very aggressive milestones for the reporting and have selected PetroData for the job, confident that they have the competence, capacity and technology required to complete the project.”


PetroData MD Trond Hanesand added, “Norsk Hydro is PetroData’s largest customer. This project extends a long list of service deliveries from PetroData to Hydro, and is an important contribution towards populating the well data module of Diskos PetroBank.”
