Where can I find the GOGEL Methodology?

The research methodology is part of the GOGEL download. You can also download the methodology seperately from our publications page. For a general overview of GOGEL, please refer to the GOGEL Explained page on our website.

Where do you get your data from?

GOGEL relies on a great variety of data sources. The information on current oil and gas production, production percentages and upstream expansion is based on quantitative data obtained from Rystad Energy. The other part of the upstream data is based on company data sources, like annual reports, financial statements and investor presentations. In some, cases, we also use information from government agencies or stock exchanges. The midstream segment of GOGEL contains information sourced from Global Energy Monitor (GEM). GEM tracks midstream infrastructure projects globally. The descriptions of the Reputational Risk projects rely on different sources, like NGO reports, independent research institutions and reliable news outlets. The relevant sources are always listed below the text.

How often will the database be updated?

We update the complete GOGEL annually in Q4. We are also already working on including gas-fired power plant expansion and other subsectors of the oil & gas industry in GOGEL. The reputational risk projects are continually updated.
