RESCUE moots XML formulation of model data standard

POSC/Energistics spin-off plans to update reservoir model exchange format.

The Rescue standards body—a spin off from a POSC/Energistics initiative—supports inter-application data transfer of reservoir model geometry and parameters. Rescue was developed as a set of C++ libraries that read and write data to a subset of the POSC/Epicentre data model.


As the industry moves to more XML-based data exchange—in particular with the arrival of WITSML and ProdML, the Rescue group is looking into the possibility of a new XML-based schema. The project has support from several of RESCUE’s major users. A members-only meeting is planned for May 16 at Energistics following the WITSML SIG (which is public). Rescue does not plan to decommission the C++ API at the present time.
