1.1.2 Must I Implement All WITSML Data Objects?

For StandardWITSML v2.0

The set of data objects that compose WITSML represent real-world objects in the drilling, completions, and workover lifecycle. However, the number of objects implemented is completely up to you and your organization, based on specific needs.

Some objects can be considered mandatory based on requirements of industry workflows. For example, operations reports (cement, stimulation job, drilling, and fluids reports) only make sense if you know for what well/wellbore the data was produced. So all WITSML implementations typically include well and wellbore data objects.

However, if you are a service company with a focused a role—for example, mud logging—then your WITSML implementations may only include the data objects required for your operations.
