Abstract

This paper gives a personal view on the drivers of the different actors of the E&P petroleum Industry (companies, vendors, certification organisations) to obtain a good level interoperability between data and applications. This is illustrated by a synthetic view of several interoperability projects dealing with subsurface aspects (geology, geophysics, reservoir). In fact, the oil and gas profession started to address subsurface data interoperability problems back in the 1990's with the well-known POSC consortium, which led to the reference Epicentre model. Since those days, many projects have been undertaken, dealing with all sorts of applications (data exchange, software interoperability, workflow modelling etc.) and using all sorts of technologies, from conventional database technologies to more advanced semantic models on top of XML. This article will help the reader find his/her way among the POSC, Epicentre, RESCUE, OpenSpirit, EpiSEM and WITSML projects for this key application domain which is only at the beginning of its life.
