OGA release new guidance on ISPs and ISCs

In February 2014, the Wood Maximising Recovery Review was published, setting out recommendations to maximise economic recovery from the UK Continental Shelf. One of its key findings was that the oil and gas industry in the UK relied heavily upon high quality data to create value, and it was therefore vital to ensure that data could be accessed in a timely manner to help create and maintain a more competitive market.

20th October 2017

The Energy Act 2016  was enacted to implement the recommendations of the Wood Review. The provisions are due to come into effect in October 2017. In preparation for this, the OGA has released new guidance with regard to the preparation and content of information and samples plans (ISPs), as well as what it expects from its interactions with information and samples coordinators (ISCs).
