How to use the Lundin data set?

Lundin shares all the data from one field, Edvard Grieg, with the researchers at The National IOR Centre of Norway. Now the time has come to decide how to use this gift in the best possible way.

The researchers at The National IOR Centre of Norway attended a workshop on the data set from Lundin 29 May.

In a workshop on 29th May representatives from Lundin presented Edvard Grieg data to IOR Centre researchers from UiS, NORCE and IFE. It was further presented what are the most important research questions from Lundin’s perspective and restrictions on data/research topics outside Lundin’s most urgent needs were informed about.

Great possibilities

It was during IOR NORWAY 2019 that Centre director Merete Vadla Madland got a gift that will be of great use for our researchers for a long time to come. CEO in Lundin Norway Kristin Færøvik gave Madland a giftbox containing data worth of 25 billion Norwegian krones.

In the giftbox was a memory stick with all the data sets from the field Edvard Grieg in the North Sea. This is the first time a operator on the Norwegian Continental Shelf has shared all the data from a whole field.

Added value

Lundin’s advice to the researchers at The Natioinal IOR Centre of Norway was that they want ideas from the Centre, and they also expect to be involved in the projects.

«Then we will create added value together,» was the conclusion from Anne Skjærstein in Lundin.

Our researchers will now plan for new projects using this valuable data set. In the workplan for 2020 you will se the new research projects generated from the Lundin data set.
