Offshore Installations

This facility provides free access to GIS data on European offshore platforms. View oil rig and gas rig data on an interactive map of Europe and search offshore drilling 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, Hydrocarbn Extraction: Offshore Installations


Resource Identification Information

Abstract
              The geodatabase on offshore installations in the EU was created in 2015 by Cogea for the European Marine Observation and Data Network (EMODnet). It is modelled on OSPAR's dataset on offshore installations, having the same fields and attributes.  OSPAR monitors the development of offshore installations and maintains an updated inventory of all oil and gas offshore installations in the OSPAR maritime area, the OSPAR Oil and Gas Offshore inventory. The database includes the name and ID number, location, operator, water depth, production start, current status, category and function of the installation. At present more than 1500 offshore installations are operational in the OSPAR maritime area, most of them sub-sea steel installations and fixed steel installations. Contracting Parties with oil and gas industry offshore installations are: Denmark, Germany, Ireland, the Netherlands, Norway, Spain and the United Kingdom.In addition, data on Italian offshore installations have been collected and harmonized from the Italian Ministry of Economic Development, from Marine Traffic and Helcom data on Polish and Russian installations in the Baltic Sea, from Marine Traffic data on Bulgarian, Russian and Ukrainian installations in the Black Sea, Lybian and Spanish installations in the Mediterranean Sea, from the Croatian Hydrocarbon Agency data on Croatian installations in the Adriatic Sea.

Lineage statement
                    OSPAR's dataset has been kept as it is provided by the source, the only exception being the harmonisation of latitude and longitude fields values. As regards data from the Italian Ministry of Economic Development and the Croatian Hydrocarbon Agency, the sources have been asked to harmonise their raw data according to OSPAR's data model. Concerning data from Marine Traffic and Helcom, codes have been assigned to each fearure. The distance to coast values have been calculated for all records.
