Data Services Department

The Data Services Department (DSD) contributes to the studies and assessments produced by the Secretariat’s Research Division by providing up-to-date and timely statistical data and reliable analysis, as well as the development of relevant software. Furthermore, it provides dependable references on oil and energy. The Department’s responsibilities also include provisioning reliable databases and software solutions to support the modelling capabilities of the Organization, and the production of one of its flagship yearly publications – the Annual Statistical Bulletin (ASB).

DSD consists of three sections: the Statistics Team, which provides data and analysis; the Development Team, which provides software, database/document management and intranet services; and the Information Centre Team, which provides research support, information collection and management services.
