After intense collaboration among operators, service companies, and software vendors (all members of an Energistics Special Interest Group (SIG)) Version 1.0 of the RESQML data exchange standard has been released. Using actual operator-supplied data, representatives of the Energistics Reservoir SIG will demonstrate use of the RESQML v1.0 data exchange format on a complete reservoir characterization workflow involving several vendors from seismic interpretation to reservoir simulation Based on the Alwyn North Field organisation, a typical validation loop involving operator in-house and vendor applications will be demonstrated. The objective is to transfer in-house interpretation results (e.g., horizons and faults) as RESQML features to diverse structural, stratigraphic, and reservoir vendor applications, then re-import the RESQML features (modelled horizon and faults, reservoir grid geometry) obtained by these applications into the in-house application to ensure, at each step, an overall consistency with the original interpretation As the demonstration presented here involves several software modelling packages, we can consider that this is an important validation of the RESQML v1.0 standard It is also a very wide use case which will be used by the consortium to inform the design of subsequent versions of the RESQML standard, based on the experiences gained in this first global experimentation.
