1.1.1 Production Volumes

For StandardPRODML v2.0

The origins of PRODML were focused on the use of the product volume data object. This has been adopted on a large scale on the Norwegian Continental Shelf (NCS) where all producing fields report to partners and the regulator using this standard. For more information, see 24 Product Volume .

The product volume data object has been used by other member companies for volume reporting but adoption has not been large, and feedback has been that this is owing to the complexity of this model.

The simple product volume reporting capability (SPVR) has been developed and added to version 2.0 and the aim throughout this development has been to keep the model as simple as possible, while still covering most, if not all, requirements.

The coverage of requirements in this area is therefore believed to be high using SPVR or product volume if the most flexible approach is needed. Maturity is medium, since uptake outside the NCS is low.
