Getting the right tool for your Production Licence Application

Collaborating and co-authoring content in and across complex documents is a challenge that most organizations face. Organizations rely on manual processes and document management solutions to maintain content and ensure consistency. For many organizations content is the core delivery of their services, it illustrates and proves their value proposition.

When getting ready for a production licensing round, oil companies needs to make the same considerations. The production licence could have a considerable impact on an oil company, and should you not have the best tools in place to increase the chances for a favourable outcome?

According to the Norwegian Petroleum Directorate (NPD), a production licence is a concession which grants exclusive rights to conduct exploration drilling and production of oil and gas within a delimited area on the Shelf. The ordinary licensing rounds, which include frontier parts of the Shelf, are normally held every other year. The Awards in Predefined Areas (APA), which comprise the mature parts of the Shelf, are announced every year. In Norway, close to 100% of the winning production licence applications has been produced in XaitPorter. In addition, XaitPorter has been used successfully in a range of other production licence application rounds in other countries such as Mexico, United Kingdom, Greenland, Iceland, Denmark and more.

The benefits of document co-authoring solutions

Production licences requires co-authoring and collaboration, often across company and country borders. Document co-authoring solutions allow documents to be edited simultaneously by multiple contributors. True collaborative solutions are built on databases, and allow for different sub-sections of a document to be edited in parallel. Basically, everyone can work on the same document at the same time, while management has complete control of the process. Automatic formatting, layout and numbering ensure writers focus solely on content. Web native solutions enable contributions from multiple locations and organizations while managers have complete control of the production process from day one. This helps organizations drastically increase the quality of their content. In addition, the support of high-res graphics and vectored graphics add to the quality of your final output.

Perhaps you also should consider the tools you work with in advance of any upcoming production licence application?
