Since 2014, GCE NODE has worked systematically to establish a data highway for integration and presentation of data across throughout the value chain.

As a result, key industry players agreed on a common data set that could be shared, and which also provided value to the project. OPC UA was chosen as a standard for interoperability. This GCE NODE project resulted in a large DEMO2000 project called Drilling Data Hub, which is currently run by Norce.
