Course Description:
This course arms you with knowledge about the many well status and classification systems used by the petroleum industry. We explore challenges associated with the resulting deluge of industry “status” vocabularies. We’ll lay out a method for reconciling these systems into a clearly laid out faceted taxonomy using the acclaimed Well Status and Classification taxonomy. We’ll show examples of how industry diversity in this vocabulary has resulted in plot symbol sets that are confusing and often contradictory; an alternative approach is explored.

Learning Outcomes:
  • Identify and discuss problems associated with well status and classification across the petroleum industry
  • Explore and show examples of different perspectives experienced by stakeholder groups over the well life cycle
