Standards stuff

Energistics’ 25th birthday celebration. Fiatech piping information flow (PIF). IOGP P1/P2 V1.1 positioning standards. GeoNetwork spatial data catalog V3.0. OPC announces ‘open shared source’ strategy for OPC-UA. SPE report on worst case discharge planning and reporting.

Energistics is to commemorate its 25th birthday with an all-day celebration on Tuesday, 3rd November, 2015 in Houston. Keynote speaker is Accidental Superpower author Peter Zeihan.

Fiatech has kicked off ‘PIF,’ a piping information flow standards project aiming at a ‘world without isometrics.’ PIF will explore the use of existing piping data exchange tools (PCF, ISO 15926) to achieve smooth piping data flow from design to construction, and ultimately to handover.

The IOGP has rolled-out version 1.1 of its P1 and P2 geophysical position data exchange formats. The format now enables the recording of land and OBC formats and additional peripheral sensor or QC data. IOGP is also revising its user guide for publication in Q3 2015.

GeoNetwork open source v3.0.0, a catalog application for spatial data management, has just been announced. The new edition provides enhanced metadata editing and search functions as well as an interactive web map viewer.

OPC has announced an OPC UA open shared source strategy. The OPC Unified Architecture specifications and technology will be made available to companies, consortia and end users without requiring membership of the OPC Foundation.

The Society of Petroleum Engineers has issued a technical report based on work done at last year’s worst-case discharge summit. The report includes calculating and reporting WCD of oil or gas to the environment following a blowout and is designed to support oil spill response planning. The methodology follows current US regulations that require deterministic evaluation of a WCD.
