Commenting in response to the Oil and Gas Authority (OGA) consultation published today on the establishment of a United Kingdom National Data Repository (NDR), which would be funded through the OGA levy, Deirdre Michie, Chief Executive of Oil & Gas UK, said:
“We will consult with our members on the increase in levy to cover the cost of a National Data Repository. The digital data store that has been managed by CDA has proven to be an indispensable tool for sharing and transferring information within our sector. As we move forward, we need to ensure that the creation of the new NDR adds further value to the good work of CDA and all it has achieved over recent decades.”
