Oil and gas operators in Norway are daily reporting to the Norwegian authorities; they do this by submitting a report called "Daily Drilling Report". These reports are created individually by each of the operator. The submitted report is supposed to be in a certain format and the authorities are providing the operators with another document that can be used to check the produced report before submission. The approach in this thesis is to show that it is possible to improve this work ow by either providing the operators with an alternative method for creating these reports or even having the authorities create these reports themselves. In both of the proposed scenarios each operator just has to make their data available in a certain way. This would allow more flexibility when it comes to changing the report format and rate of reporting while at the same time allowing for the production of reports of equal or better quality. To explore this issue a limited proof of concept prototype that is generating a subset of the Daily Drilling Report has been developed. This prototype did what it was supposed to and could be developed further into software of production quality, either to solve this scenario or other scenarios.
