Speaking at the recent POSC/Caesar Association member meeting in Forus, Norway, Gabriel Lopes introduced his company, Tecgraf, a.k.a. the Computer Graphics Technology Group. Tecgraf was created in May 1987 by Petrobras’ Cenpes R&D unit along with the Pontifical Catholic University of Rio de Janeiro (PUC-Rio). Tecgraf is carrying the ISO 15926 torch to the Brazilian oil and gas industry—having joined the Austin, TX-based Fiatech organization last year.
Tecgraf sees ISO15926 as an opportunity to deal with ‘everyday’ interoperability issues and to brush up its R&D effort in semantic web technology with oil and gas funding. The plan is to give Petrobras control over its data and over its choice for software solutions by driving the adoption of ISO15926 in Brazil
PUC-Rio is to host a ‘high level’ ISO15926 workshop for Petrobras in November 2010 where Tecgraf plans to promote ISO15926 pilot project opportunities and semantic web technologies. More from www.tecgraf.puc-rio.br.
