Rystad Energy - Energy Knowledge House



NORWEPCube is a comprehensive field-by-field database, covering E&P purchases for key offshore regions. The database is a single source tool containing oilfield service demand for E&P companies broken down onto 15 service segments. NORWEPCube is an ideal tool for market analysis, strategy and business development, benchmarking, project opportunity screening, operator portfolio analysis, evaluation of the oilfield services supplier market, among others. NORWEPCube is exclusively available for NORWEP partners.

Background: NORWEPCube is the source of all graphed and tabulated market expenditure data in the Annual Offshore Oil & Gas Market Report prepared by Rystad Energy for NORWEP (previously INTSOK) since 2010. The data foundation of the report stems from the proprietary bottom-up databases UCube (Upstream Database) and ServiceCube (Oil Service Demand and Supply Databases). In August 2018, at the same time as NORWEP published AOMR 2018, Rystad Energy released NORWEPCube for the first time.

NORWEPCube includes data for around 12,000 assets and over 500 operators. Data is further split along market dimensions such as geography, water depth, facility type and field life cycle for all fields, discoveries and exploration licenses in the offshore regions covered.

NORWEPCube is updated monthly based on publicly available company information, market studies and Rystad Energy’s internal upstream research and analysis. NORWEPCube comes with our desktop application Cube Browser – a user-friendly graphical interface, enabling fast filtering, extraction and display of data. Data is available in chart, table and map views.
