For StandardPRODML v2.0

Each of Energistics domain standards—RESQML, WITSML and PRODML—leverages components in the Energistics Common Technical Architecture (Figure 2-1).

Figure 2-1 The Energistics family of standards includes WITSML, RESQML and PRODML, which share the Energistics Common Technical Architecture.

PRODML comprises a set of XML schemas covering a range of sub-domains of the whole scope of production management in upstream oil and gas. Additional components of PRODML are located within the Energistics Common Technical Architecture. PRODML is available as a downloaded zip file, which installs the schemas, together with examples and documentation, into a folder structure which includes the CTA elements.

This chapter describes:

  • An overview of the main CTA components and the purpose of each.
  • PRODML schema top-level data objects and the mapping of these onto the sub-domains of production management as outlined in Chapter 1 Introduction to PRODML .
  • Usage of the elements of CTA in PRODML v2.0.
  • Common expected usage of other Energistics domain standards by PRODML.
