INT announced the completion of a Virtual Data Room (VDR) for the Angola’s National Agency for Oil, Gas and Biofuels (Agência Nacional de Petróleo, Gás e Biocombustíveis) (“ANPG”), developed through collaboration with SATEC and MIAPIA.
The ANPG VDR is a cloud platform based on INT's IVAAP subsurface data visualization platform and implemented with and by SATEC and MIAPIA. The platform allows secure access to E&P data managed by the Gabinete de Archivo de Datos (Data Management Department) of ANPG. The platform restricts user access to specific, predefined data sets.
Some of the VDR's greatest functionalities are the support for the most important objects and formats in the sector (well logs, 2D and 3D seismic, trajectories, or lithology) through connectors to databases that store E&P information in the most common file formats: LAS, DLIS, SEG-Y. It also allows the visualization and research of these data on a GIS platform and access and preview of technical reports in PDF format.
“ANPG is very pleased with the implementation of the Virtual Data Room solution, a strategic tool for the promotion of Angola’s oil potential and the attraction of foreign investment, as well as the digital transformation of the organization itself,” said Lúmen Sebastião, GAD Director, ANPG.
To date, the VDR supplies E&P data related to offshore blocks, Baixo Congo Basin, and Kwanza Basin. More than 20 VDR sessions have been held, with the participation of 15 companies. Furthermore, ANPG is participating in benchmarking activities, sharing with colleagues from other countries their experience with the VDR solution.
