The DMC is designed to provide registered users with access to non-confidential petroleum exploration and production data from offshore Nova Scotia, subject to certain conditions. The DMC is housed in the CNSOPB's Geoscience Research Centre located in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia. Initially, the DMC will manage and distribute the following digital petroleum data: well data (i.e. logs and reports), seismic image files (e.g. TIFF, PDF), and production data. In the future the DMC could be expanded to include operational, safety, environmental, fisheries data, etc.
