The Ministry of Energy and Water is pleased to announce the release of the first GeoPackage (Framework GeoPackage) that has been created to provide a high quality data set that can be utilised by all parties involved in the Management, Exploration and Development of hydrocarbons in Lebanon.

The Framework GeoPackage is free – no cost (requires license agreement signature)

Three separate GeoPackages have been developed:
  1. Framework GeoPackage

    The Framework GeoPackage may be accessed after first accepting the terms of the License Agreement. There is no license fee to utlise the Framework GeoPackage. The Framework GeoPackage contains basic geographic information, seismic navigation, seismic examples, well locations, well summary sheets, surface geology and cross sections. It provides a useful starting point. Note that the framework GIS had been already utilised within the initial environmental impact assessment study that was recently completed.
  2. Digital Atlas GeoPackage

    This version will be included with the bidding documents (bid package) for the first offshore Licensing Round and given only to prequalified companies on the opening of the first licensing round. It will contain details of the contract areas on offer and representative seismic images through them in addition to all the information contained within the Framework GeoPackage.
  3. Enhanced Digital Atlas GeoPackage

    The Enhanced Digital Atlas version will be distributed through PGS upon the opening of the first Licensing Round offshore Lebanon. The final content has not yet been agreed but it could contain enhanced geo-scientific information including Grids of key horizons, Digital Well data, Field Sample analysis, Basin Modelling results, Gravity & Magnetics grids. The enhanced version will only be available to companies who have licensed a defined amount of seismic data. It will require the payment of a separate license fee and will be distributed under a PGS license agreement.
The GeoPackages are provided in ArcGIS format and can be utilised using free ArcReader software (supplied) or a full Arc (ESRI) license. For more details please see presentation.
