Oil and Gas Directorate, North Sea Geographical Information System

The North Sea GIS datasets (part of the National Digital Archive of Datasets) contain spatial data locating oil and gas field boundaries and pipelines. The datasets are used regularly by such entities as the British Geological Survey, Schlumberger Geoquest and Asset Geoscience Ltd. Other users include oil companies, central and local government, data supply companies and other national governments. The dataset also includes data covering current and previous licences, and details of UK pipelines including those under construction.
