Well-log data, well completion reports, seismic data and geophysical reports should be submitted to the Department in industry-standard digital formats on size-appropriate media (e.g. CD / DVD / thumb-drive / hard-drive). Full details are given in the Digital Data submission guidelines but, in summary, these data should be in line with industry best practice and should normally consist of (as appropriate):

  1. Copies of all field recordings & supporting technical documentation, as delivered to the licencee (or its designated data processing contractor) by the acquisition contractor, and
  2. Copies of all deliverables and supporting technical documentation, as provided to the licencee by the company carrying out the processing or reprocessing of the data.
