ArcticWeb is a portal built by 7 oil companies for the purpose of simplifying access to the data necessary for exploration and development activities in the Arctic region. The project has created an access point offering broad connectivity to Norwegian public data sources, and allows users to extra value from information spread across numerous data sources – for free.
On 12 April, from 13:00-15:00 in the Oslo city centre, we will meet with the Norwegian public authorities that own the data we expose through ArcticWeb. We will explain the history of the project and present our key findings. We’ll discuss open data concepts, demonstrate how health and environment departments use ArcticWeb to comply with legislative requirements, and explain the importance that access to their data means for safety, decision-making, and sustainable development of Norwegian natural resources.
We are requesting attendance from representatives of our data owners: The Institute of Marine Research, The Norwegian Institute for Nature Research, The Geological Survey of Norway, The Norwegian Polar Institute, The Norwegian Meteorological Institute, The Norwegian Directorate of Fisheries, The Directorate for Nature Management, The Norwegian Petroleum Directorate, The Petroleum Safety Authority Norway, The Norwegian Coastal Administration (KYSTVERKET), The Norwegian Hydrographic Service, Clean Seas Association for Operating Companies (NOFO), The Climate and Pollution Agency, The Norwegian Ministry of Petroleum and Energy, and the joint-industry Norwegian Deepwater Programme.
Representing ArcticWeb will be the joint industry partners Statoil, ConocoPhillips, BG Group, ENI, Lundin, Spring Energy, Shell, and the project team from KADME and Acona.
