Drilling, Completions and Interventions SIG – WITSML
This is the longest-standing and most active Energistics SIG, with WITSML reaching 85% adoption in the industry and recognized as a mission-critical component of deviated drilling, geosteering, remote drilling operation control and monitoring and many other applications. WITSML is also used to transfer data between repositories, to share data with partners and government agencies, and to archive the events related to drilling a well so that analytics can be applied to the data.
Reservoir Model and Interpretation SIG – RESQML
The RESQML SIG addresses the need to work on reservoir models with different software systems. Making sure that the data retains its detail and metadata requires coordination between software development companies to address the use-cases described by operators and service companies. The universal nature of this SIG’s standards also opens the door to new software products by lowering the cost of integration to existing platforms.
Production Data SIG – PRODML
The PRODML SIG is working on realistically transferring the data from tens of thousands of sensors equipping a digital oilfield at high frequencies of measurement. The data is used to compile production volumes as well monitoring production equipment so as to anticipate maintenance needs
Members of the SIGs have contributed to the development of common standards for Units of Measure (UOM) and metadata (Energy Industry Profile – EIP) that ensure that data is correctly referenced and qualified by subsequent users without recourse to any external information.
