Report archive at GEUS

The subsurface archive's main objective is the handling of data from oil and gas related exploration activities in Denmark as well as in Greenland. This means data from deep wells and seismic surveys.

Data from shallow wells (water supply wells, raw material wells, geotechnical wells and others) are stored in the Well Data Archive.
The Act concerning the use of the Danish subsurface states that all data acquired during activities in the Danish subsurface must be forwarded to the Geological Survey of Denmark and Greenland (GEUS). This makes GEUS the national databank for all types of data from the Danish subsurface.
Due to an agreement with the Government of Greenland all data from activities in Greenland are also stored in the GEUS databank.

Data from released 2D and 3D seismic surveys.
Data from released appraisal- and exploration wells.
