1.6.1 Further Development, Refinement of Use, and Experimentation

For StandardRESQML v2.0.1

Data-exchange standards can be a "chicken-and-egg" situation. For example, only one of the six grid classes now supported in RESQML has seen wide-spread historical use in the industry; that is corner-point grids.

Lack of shared data standards for 2.5D unstructured column-layer grids and for fully 3D unstructured grids have limited their use and accessibility in the industry, and have impeded cooperation between different technical domains, e.g., flow simulation and geomechanical calculations. Now that these newer grid types are defined in RESQML and their data can be exchanged, it should enable and foster experimentation and learning about how the data might be shared and used.
