1.5.3 Energistics Common Technical Architecture (CTA)

Topic Version1Published09/11/2015
For StandardRESQML v2.0.1

One of the goals of digital oilfield technology is to break down domain silos in E&P workflows. In support of this goal, Energistics is working to better harmonize its domain-based standards, including RESQML, WITSML (for drilling), and PRODML (for production operations). For example, RESQML now uses the wellbore data object from WITSML.

Conversely, Energistics is also moving towards sharing resources and establishing processes across its standards where this approach makes sense, for example, with coordinate reference systems, units of measure, and file packaging conventions. These shared resources are referred to as the Energistics Common Technology Architecture (CTA). For more information, see 4.2 Energistics Common Technical Architecture (common) .
