Seismic data

The Oil and Gas Authority has released almost 40,000 line kilometres of new and legacy seismic data from the Rockall Trough and Mid-North Sea High areas acquired during last year’s £20 million Government-funded seismic survey.

The data has been published under the Open Government Licence, and is available for download and to order on media from www.ukoilandgasdata.com.

Data packages under 20GB in size may be downloaded for free, while larger data packages will be available on media only, for which a charge will be made to cover media, handling, and delivery costs.
