SWAPT - Semantic Workflow Architecture for Petroleum Techniques

Abstract

In the petroleum industry, many engineering studies are conducted to evaluate the potential of the geological structures to be exploited as hydrocarbon reservoirs. They are realized following series of complex workflows composed by activities realized by geologists. Nowadays these workflows are build mainly according to the experience gained by experts along their previous realizations. It is not possible to share this experience between geologists by reusing and composing activities if a minimum of semantics is not applied to describe them and the workflows that use them. The focus of our work is to evaluate the benefit of using semantics to make the geologist daily work easier. In this article, we first explain how we can operate today without semantics. Then, we enrich such complex workflows and the data they manipulate with semantic annotations through ontology-based characterizations (Geological Data and Activities Ontologies). As future work, we plan to use these annotations for a full architecture that would assist geologists in building their workflows.
