The Ministry of Petroleum and Energy (MPE) and the Norwegian Petroleum Directorate (NPD) have developed an application which presents data and statistics extracted from NPD’s fact pages and fact maps. The maps show fields and active exploration wells.
The application contains updated news from MPE and NPD and an analysis function which allows data to be filtered and sorted, and allows the user to generate graphs and tables.
The app is available in Norwegian and English versions and can be downloaded to iPhone, Android and WindowsPhone.
