Course Description

Four different classes will be available for this event.
August 12, 2019
Morning (8:00-12:00pm) - PDM-040: Business Life Cycle of the Well
- This course provides a general overview of the business life cycle of the well within the petroleum asset life cycle, including planning, drilling, completing, producing, and disposing. We will focus on business processes, using an operating company as the basis.
Afternoon (1:00 - 5:00pm) - PDM-060: Introduction to Master Data Management
- Increasingly, the petroleum industry is focused on integrated life cycle asset management systems that bring together critical information from many disciplines over the decades long asset life cycle. Master data management solutions are designed to help define and manage critical data about assets to provide, through harmonization and data integration, a single point of reference. This class reviews fundamental master data management principles including: data governance, data architectures, master data, data quality and the life cycle of data in the business. You will explore at a high level how the PPDM data model supports master data management concepts.
August 13, 2019
Morning (8:00-12:00pm) - DM39-002: PPDM 3.9: Data Model Overview
- Designed by hundreds of industry experts to manage the data and information created and used to manage the E&P life cycle from the perspectives of many disciplines and stakeholders, the PPDM Data Model is an excellent vendor neutral master data management repository. Taught from the perspective of industry business processes, this class shows how the data model supports a wide range of business processes from the perspective of both operators and regulators.
Afternoon (1:00 - 5:00pm) - DM39-006: PPDM 3.9: Seismic
- Seismic can be conducted on land or offshore. Recording may be two dimensional (linear) or three dimensional (polygonal). 4D (time variant) seismic surveys may be conducted in specific areas many times over a period of years to study and understand how a reservoir is being depleted through production. Each phase of the exploration life cycle is intensively data driven. Permanent records detailing the processes and technology applied, observations and results are retained. Suitable cataloguing practices must be employed to ensure that this data asset is managed for the future. This course covers the PPDM 3.9 Data Model Seismic subject area for all stages of the life cycle for seismic sets, locations, acquisition, processing, interpretation, and transactions.
