O&G extraction platforms: localization of platforms and characteristics (oil/gas extraction; structure, period of activity, etc.)

The database on offshore installations for hydrocarbon extraction was created in 2015 by Cogea for the European Marine Observation and Data Network (EMODnet). The dataset includes the name and ID number, location, operator, water depth, production start, current status, category and function of the installation. The OSPAR commission source covers data for Germany, Ireland, the Netherlands, 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 the Norwegian Petroleum Directorate data on Norwegian installations, from the Danish Energy Agency data on Danish installations, 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. The distance to coast (EEA coastline shapefile) has been calculated using the original data map projections, where available. In the other cases it was used the UTM WGS84 Zone projected coordinate system where data fall in. Compared with the previous version this new version has been updated for certain countries (IT, NO, DK). No updates are available from other sources of data.
