Common Data Access awards five-year contract to SIS

Common Data Access (CDA), a subsidiary of Oil & Gas UK, has awarded Schlumberger Information Solutions (SIS) a five-year contract to operate the CDA DataStore.

The CDA DataStore is a centralised, online application used by oil and gas explorers to source subsurface data gathered from the UK Continental Shelf (UKCS).

Malcolm Fleming, CDA’s chief executive, said: ‘Exploration and production companies operating in a mature province such as the UKCS need to use their resources in the most efficient way possible, and fast access to quality data is therefore crucial to business success.’
