"What is a Well" Evergreen
Ask ten times “What is a well?” and you might get ten different answers. People think of a well in terms of their workflows and experience. A reservoir engineer, production accountant, landman, field operator, business executive, and data manager all have different perspectives. Semantics (the contextual meaning of a word) can cause miscommunication within and beyond an organization. To address this issue, a PPDM Association Work Group, sponsored by several operating companies and data vendors, has created baseline definitions for important well components. These definitions have become the foundation to analyze the terminology used by regulatory agencies around the world. You can read more about What is a Well on our website.
Over time the What Is a Well semantic standard continues to evolve, and the PPDM Association will be launching this Evergreen Work Group with interested Association members. This Kick off Meeting is for all members committed to giving their time and expertise to this Work Group.

This virtual kick off meeting will take place at 8:00 am Mountain (Calgary) time on Monday, August 9, 2021, on our virtual teams platform for approximately two hours. Meeting information will be forwarded by calendar invitation after registration is received within 1-2 business days.
