For StandardRESQML v2.0.1

RESQML v1.1 was the successor to RESCUE, an industry-defined data exchange standard based on binary files and used since the late 1990s. The goal of RESQML v1.1 was to leverage newer technologies and established standards, such as XML and HDF, to replicate RESCUE functionality.

The overarching design objectives of RESQML v2.0 are to:

  • Improve the richness of existing domain objects.
  • Add new domain objects to the data model to support the more sophisticated capabilities of the software packages used in E&P workflows.
  • Add relationships among data objects.
  • Support flexible workflows, for example, by supporting partial model updates.
