The oil and gas industry cannot function without collaboration. Companies in this industry have traditionally employed joint venture (JV) strategies to protect and grow their businesses. But more recently, they have realized the benefits that can be derived from sharing information about the value chain and life cycle of assets that they wouldn’t have shared in the past.

To meet this demand, a cloud service called License2Share (L2S) was created, which allows users to access solutions that are tailored to their specific information sharing needs. L2S is designed to enable collaboration and content sharing in a joint venture between operators, partners and authorities.

L2S is based on 12 years of experience in the Nordic Continental Shelf as described in chapter 2. L2Sis made available outside the Nordic Continental Shelf through a strategic alliance between EPIM, CGI and Open Text.
