  • GeoTechnical Data Portal Open or Close

    An interactive technical data browsing and ordering system is available that can be accessed through the following link:
    https://geoportal.petroleumagencysa.com/StoreFrontViewer/default.html

    For detailed assistance with the use of the web portal – click here
    https://geoportal.petroleumagencysa.com/Storefront/Viewer/

    The system provides for the viewing of various layers of information through an interactive geographical information system. Different layers like, data asset elements (wells and seismic surveys), existing active licenses, basins, national parks, towns and provinces can be overlaid onto base-maps. The database can be queried on availability of existing data within the area of interest.

    Further functionality exists in querying the database through user defined polygons, wildcard multiple asset element definitions and ordering the data through a user registration process.

    Clients ordering data, need to register as a Commercial, Governmental or Academic entity before any orders can be placed. Once registered, an e-mail will be sent to the client to provide them with the necessary login information. In following the prescribed procedure, the client can then select the data they require and place an order.

    The following process flow diagram illustrates the process of ordering documents on data from the online store:
