Petroleum Data Regulatory

As the national hydrocarbon repository for Brunei Darussalam, we are responsible for the protection and preservation of all petroleum and non-petroleum data relevant to the Brunei Darussalam’s oil and gas industry. This includes but not limited to geological, geophysical, petrophysical, geochemical, log, map, production data, tapes, cores, cuttings, other interpretation and analytical reports etc.

Hydrocarbon data is essentially a national asset. Even age-old upstream dataset might give new results in view of new technological infrastructure which is why safeguarding Brunei Darussalam’s petroleum data is essential.

The Brunei Darussalam’s National Petroleum Data Repository for petroleum-related information and samples will enhance our digital infrastructure.
