Work is underway to upgrade the OGA’s National Data Repository (NDR) platform. The OGA considers this as an opportunity to introduce significant improvements to the platform while recognising that the NDR platform will continue to evolve incrementally over time. The OGA intends to introduce both functional changes and broadening of the data scope in line with its powers under the Energy Act 2016 in relation to information and samples.

The OGA hosts and chairs the NDR Advisory Committee, which includes representation of industry, academia and the OGA. The NDR Advisory Committee has established a Working Group for the upgraded NDR, which aims to create a roadmap for the longer-term development of the platform.

In January, the OGA also will be holding two NDR roadmap workshops. The purpose of these is to gain ideas and priorities for the next 5-10 years from a wide cross-section of NDR users (including those not directly represented on the NDR Advisory Committee).

10 spaces are reserved for service provider representatives. Service providers with an interest in bidding for any future work in relation to the NDR should consider that their attendance may exclude them from the OGA procurement in relation to the NDR platform.


  • 14th January 1pm-5pm, British Library, 96 Euston Road, London
  • 16th January: 1pm-5pm, OGA offices, 48 Huntly Street, Aberdeen
