Boreholes

This facility provides free access to GIS data on European marine boreholes. View the marine borehole data on an interactive map of Europe and search borehole sites and locations. Alternatively, download Esri compatible GIS files (Geodatabase or Shapefile). Datasets are also available via OGC compliant web feature service (WFS) or web map services (WMS). The metadata featured here can be downloaded as XML.

EMODnet Human Activities: Offshore Hydrocarbon Extraction


Resource Identification Information

Abstract
              The database on offshore hydrocarbon extraction boreholes in the EU was created in 2014 by Cogea for the European Marine Observation and Data Network (EMODnet). It is the result of the aggregation and harmonization of datasets provided by several sources from all across the EU (plus Norway). It is updated every year, and is available for viewing and download on EMODnet - Human Activities web portal (www.emodnet-humanactivities.eu). The database contains points representing offshore hydrocarbon boreholes drilled in the following countries: Croatia, Cyprus, Denmark, Faroe Islands, France, Germany, Greece (only for western coast), Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Malta, Montenegro, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Spain, and UK. Each point has the following attributes (where available): status (active, abandoned, suspended, other), country, code, name, year (spud date), purpose (exploration, exploitation, other), content (crude oil, natural gas, crude oil and natural gas, dry, other), operator, drilling company/facility, distance to coast (metres) and water depth (metres). The distance to coast (EEA coastline shapefile) has been calculated using the original data map projections, where available. In the other cases it was used the UTM WGS84 Zone projected ccoordinate system where data fall in. Compared with the previous version this new version has been not only updated but was also reviewed (dataset schema and attributes values) in order to make it more compliant with INSPIRE.

Lineage
Lineage statement
                    Data were retrived from 18 different countries. Validation and quality assurance remain up to primary data sources, while harmonization is carried out by Cogea. For further information on validation and quality assurance, it is suggested that primary data sources are contacted. Generally speaking data are to be considered very reliable, because they come from national sources officially in charge for their collection.
