Petition to support the creation of a comprehensive, consistent, open-source well database, for the entirety of The Netherlands
The undersigned members of the Geoscience Community support the creation of a Digital Well Database for all publicly-released well data in The Netherlands, and this be done in such a manner that facilitates data mining with the latest Machine Learning techniques. The new well database with cleaned-up, standardized well logs, geologic information and drilling engineering data must be readily available to the public and needs to be maintained after its launch. The intent is to expand and build further on the databases already generated by e.g. TNO and EBN in cooperation with these institutes.
