ISO 15926 and ISO 15926 Reference data Projects developing ISO 15926 Reference data Special Interest Groups (SIGs) Summary

The Norwegian Oil Industry Association (OLF) has focus on data Availability and quality of data is the basis for: ďƒź work processes ďƒź operational decisions


IT - OLF has focus on transformation and routing (Enterprise Service Bus (ESB)) Domain - OLF has focus on terminology (ISO 15926) (3 levels of data integration - Dictionary - Taxonomy - Ontology)

History of POSC Caesar Association (PCA)  POSC Caesar started as a national Norwegian R&D project in 1993 to develop specification and standards mainly for data handover from engineering contractor to owner/operator in the Oil and Gas industry

 Continued as an international R&D project in 1994-1997 with an increased scope

 The POSC Caesar Association (PCA) was established in November 1997

 PCA is a global, not-for-profit, independent member organisation developing, enhancing, and promoting methodology, technology and solutions for data interoperability with special focus on ISO 15926

 PCA has 35 members in 11 countries on 4 continents

Integrated Operations (IO) Generation 1 and Generation 2 IO is real time data onshore from offshore fields and new integrated work processes

IO Generation 1 and 2 Potential Integration across companies

Generation 2 • Integrated operation centers of operators and vendors • Heavily automated processes • 24/7 operation

Integration across onshore and offshore Generation 1 • Integrated onshore and offshore centers • Continuous onshore support Limited integration Traditional processes • Self-sustainable fields • Specialized onshore units • Periodic onshore support
