O&G Data link is a project management office established by a coalition of companies in the Norwegian energy sector to identify and promote best practices, examples and recommendations related to sharing of data.
O&G Data link envisions a Norwegian energy industry with more data available for use between companies, leading in turn to industry-wide gains in safety, productivity and efficiency.
The O&G Data link's steering committee comprises companies participating in the Johan Sverdrup development, both license partners and suppliers. Equinor leads the project management office, and DigitalNorway contributes to the work bringing insight and examples from other industry collaboration initiatives. The steering committee initiates specific collaboration cases and reference groups, and appoints key people to lead and follow through, promoting specific enablers and/or addressing barriers that prevent digital collaboration.
The O&G Data link initiative has also been a catalyst for development of a strategic overview of industry initiatives related to digital collaboration.
