The Diskos National Data Repository (NDR) is Norway's national data repository for petroleum data.
Diskos is a joint venture consisting of the Norwegian Petroleum Directorate (NPD) and oil companies on the Norwegian Continental Shelf. NPD coordinates and manages the joint venture. Non-oil companies can apply for associated membership. More information about Diskos membership.

The Diskos NDR has become a vital and useful tool for storing, sharing and online retrieval of these data types by the members of the Diskos joint venture. Non-confidential data from the database is also available to non-members off-line according to standard handling fees. Prices are available upon request.
