iCORDS provides access to offshore petroleum exploration data curated from scientific ocean drilling programs such as DSDP, ODP, and IODP as well as seismic data from NGDC. All data is presented in a geographical context and is “analytics-ready” for direct use in petroleum exploration workflows. Data can be accessed for a single ocean drilling well site or an entire region at once providing meaningful insights into the wealth of publicly available ocean drilling data.

E&P Insights™, the latest product developed by the iCORDS team, is a free web map application that delivers global E&P information collected from a variety of syndicated offshore E&P industry news providers directly to your fingertips. Displayed information is continuously updated with an automated georeferencing process providing a geographical location for each news article. These insights are combined with current exploration activity via TPH’s Global Well Watch and delivered inside an easy to use web map application together with a preview of available ocean drilling well sites on the iCORDS platform.

E&P Insights™ is completely free to use and can serve as part of a daily industry news ritual to stay on top of relevant offshore developments and drilling activities.

EGI encourages everyone to visit iCORDS E&P insights and make use of this valuable tool.
