INTEROPERABILITY IN THE PETROLEUM INDUSTRY

Jon Atle Gulla

Abstract

The petroleum industry is a technically challenging business with highly specialized companies and complex operational structures. Several terminological standards have been introduced over the last few years, though they address particular disciplines and cannot help people collaborate efficiently across disciplines and organizational borders. This paper discusses the results from the industrally driven Integrated Information Platform project, which has developed and formalized an extensive OWL ontology for the Norwegian petroleum business. The ontology is now used in production reports, and the ontology is considered vital to semantic interoperability and the concept of integrated operations on the Norwegian continental shelf.
