1.1.3 RESQML Workflow: A Simple Example

Topic Version1Published09/11/2015
For StandardRESQML v2.0.1

Figure 1.1.3-1 is an example of a very simple subsurface workflow using RESQML-enabled software. When users need to move data to the next software application in their workflow, they choose to write (export) data to the RESQML format. In this example, User A using Software A writes the data to the RESQML format, which is transported in an EPC file (sometimes called an Energistics package; for more information, see 2.2.1 Energistics Packaging Conventions (EPC) ). That next software application may be a tool used by another discipline in the workflow or by a partner company in a joint venture. If that software application is RESQML-enabled, it can read (import) the EPC file containing the RESMQL data and process the data in its native environment.

Figure 1.1.3-1 A user writes (exports) a file to the RESQML format, which is stored in an EPC file and may be read (imported) by other RESQML-enabled software.
