About the service

License2Share was established by the predecessor to the Norwegian Oil and Gas Association, OLF, at the turn of the century. It was created by a group of individuals who believed that Joint Venture Management could be done much more securely and efficiently than the manual processes at the time allowed. Over the course of just a couple of years License2Share became the standard tool for managing joint ventures on the Norwegian Continental Shelf.

License2Share is designed to meet the requirements for information handling as stated in the Joint Venture Agreements. Joint venture management affects the whole lifecycle of a field and all parts of the organization. The use of License2Share is based on acceptance of and adherence to policy principles and common work processes.

The Norwegian Oil and Gas recommends use of License2Share for all formal joint venture communication and archiving.

L2S Authority Communication

License2Share has a separate area for communicating with the authorities, called Authority Communication. Authority Communication is a secure, electronic communication channel between the authorities and licensees on the Norwegian Continental Shelf.
