India taking bids for data repository

India’s Directorate General of Hydrocarbons will hold a meeting Oct. 12 at its headquarters in Noida, outside New Delhi, for companies interested in building and operating its Hydrocarbon Exploration and Production National Data Repository (NDR).

The Ministry of Petroleum and Natural Gas has identified establishment of the NDR as an initial step in its move toward open-acreage licensing for oil and gas exploration and production (OGJ Online, Aug. 28, 2012).

DGH, the ministry’s regulatory branch, is soliciting international bids from prospective contractors to build, populate, and operate the NDR. It has published a tender document on its web site. Bidding closes on Dec. 13.
