In today's dynamic and evolving global markets, staying ahead of the curve is crucial for upstream industry leaders. With a profound shift in market dynamics, driven by an unprecedented supply deficit and soaring prices, the need for timely and accurate information has never been greater. At Rystad Energy, we understand the challenges you face and are committed to providing you with the tools and insights necessary to navigate this complex landscape and make informed decisions with confidence.

Our Upstream Solution is a comprehensive database that covers all oil and gas exploration, production and injector wells across the globe. We have added more than 3 million historical wells to our database. For each well, you can access information such as its location, operator, purpose, water depth, and drilling depth. Additionally, for production wells, we provide well-level production profiles with monthly granularity. This allows you to study historical drilling activity, well productivity, and benchmark drilling and production results with ease.

Moreover, in addition to the global database, get access to a fully customized modeling tool, where you can input your own assumptions on a variety of parameters (e.g., prices, discount rate, tax models) to generate customized profiles for each company or project of interest.

Our analytical tools are also supplemented by access to the client portal with the library of reports and commentaries that synthesize the market implications of trends and key events along with our expert views, all backed by Rystad Energy's unparalleled data universe.
