Access to information

The Oil and Gas Authority (OGA) is committed to being open and transparent, and aims to ensure that its data is as accessible as possible.

We publish information in a variety of ways and in a range of formats. This website contains everything published by OGA, but our data is also available from Data.gov.uk among others.

The OGA continues to look for ways to develop our range of published data and indicators to help provide greater transparency.

A review of information - a more transparent approach

The OGA is undertaking a review of the information that it provides to the public including compiling an inventory of its information assets. We are also working with a wide range of communities to maximise the value derived from our data and improve the transparency of our information, for example by:

  • Engaging with our analytical and statistical communities to improve how we make our non-personal and non-commercial data more accessible.
  • Working across business areas to ensure transparency is recognised as a key operating principle and information is routinely published.
  • Reviewing our existing suite of information to see what can be published.
  • Committing to make all appropriate datasets available from all new policy and delivery initiatives where able.
