Project team members, including project managers, analysts, developers and business stakeholders, who are preparing for an implementation of a PPDM Well data store, or who will map between a proprietary data store and PPDM.
In an age of integrated data, using words clearly and consistently is critical to success. This course helps you understand why and how the language used to describe various components of a well has diverged over time, which has made clear communication difficult.
We’ll help you navigate global semantic differences and understand the components of a well. In addition, we review the ground-breaking work done by the collaborative industry project "What is a Well" (WIAW), and the WIAW interactive tool, baseline definitions, representative diagrams, and baseline comparisons.
Evaluation Method(s) / Metrics:
- Identify baseline definitions associated with WIAW (i.e. Well, Well Set, Well Origin, Wellbore, Wellbore Segment, etc.)
- Review and discuss the WIAW interactive tool created by a PPDM Association Work Group, and the importance of this resource to the petroleum industry
- Recognize the appropriate application of the baseline definitions as they pertain to the petroleum industry data management roles
- Review examples of WIAW representative diagrams and discuss individual components over the lifecycle of a well, and recognize common situations that often result in misunderstanding and data management problems
- Discuss how the WIAW tool can assist you in understanding regulatory practices, and potential pitfalls associated with reporting
- Understand how the variability with which wells are identified can lead to long learning times and increased risk of error
There are no tests or measurements for the Classroom course. There is an examination for the online course (70% or higher to achieve a Pass).
