The OGA’s new Petroleum Production Reporting System (PPRS) will go live late on the 9th June. The new system will provide substantial benefits to industry and the OGA and following a series of information sessions and testing with UKCS operators, key changes to the system are as follows:

  • New interface for operators to load monthly data into PPRS via XML upload, web service, online form upload
  • Standard data validation rules to ensure high quality data
  • New accountability and processes for data quality and data submission
  • Enhanced tools for the OGA to monitor data quality and data submissions
  • Some changes to the definitions of reporting units
  • QC and feedback loop is quicker
  • Better tracking and governance of data submissions

The OGA will be conducting training sessions on 12-15th June (in both Aberdeen and London) with first data submissions due before the 25th June. Support will be offered through the usual UKOPs helpdesk (, Tel 0300 067 1682)
