API take-up

Halliburton is to use the API’s ComProServ e-business spec

Halliburton Energy Services (HES) is ready to comply with the American Petroleum Institute’s (API) Recommended Practice 3901, e-Commerce transaction standard. The API ComProServ task group has been disbanded with all its objectives completed. The resulting spec is API RP 3901, Parts 1,2,3 and 4. The XML-based specification was developed to underpin e-business transactions involving complex products and services. The spec sets out to minimize the duplication of effort in paper transactions between service companies and operators. Among the 12 transactions that are included in the standards are requests for quotations, order create, field tickets and invoices. HES has already completed two pilot programs using the new standards.
