Well Status & Classification


Problem Statement:

Well status and classification are some of the


most widely abused terms in the oil and gas
industry
There are many different definitions being used
with very little consistency in terms of terminology
or semantic meaning.
Wells may be grouped in many ways but
companies often try to establish a single well
class or status
Consequently, data gets aggregated resulting in
complex and confusing codes there are literally
thousands of these

Well Status & Classification


This results in:
- Misunderstanding by users and organizations
- Problems with regulatory reporting and
compliance
- Poor decisions around property acquisition and
divestiture
- Challenges with data mapping
- ..
This has a significant impact on businesses

What is a Well? Phase II

Establish baseline definitions for well


status and classification over the
lifecycle of a well that can be used for
communication and comparison
purposes.
Define a baseline symbol set that can be
used to represent well classification and
status on a map.
Add review of Eastern States and
Australian States to WIAW Phase I

Well Facets
Well status and classification are essentially different
ways of describing wells so that people can find the
right set of wells these are facets
A facet comprises clearly defined, independent
properties of an object
Facets contain values that are mutually exclusive
with values in other facets
Facets may be hierarchical in nature
Sub-facets or qualifiers

By combining information from many facets, users


can group or identify wells for many key functions

Well Status and Classification


There are two types of facets that we deal with:
State based facets:
- Provide a snap shot of where a well is in business terms
- Are a point in time view that will change over the life of a well
- Will generally change in a predicable, sequential pattern that can be
tied to the well lifecycle

Classification based facets:


- Provide a method to group wells based on a characteristic of a well,
such as whether it is producing or injecting.
- Have values that may change over the life of a well
- Have no set pattern to changes
- Are not tied to the well lifecycle
- Are essentially an attribute of the well

Business Life Cycle Phase State: Definition and Values
Business Life Cycle Phase is a collection of
activities and conditions, that are grouped according
to business significance, describing where an E&P
asset (in this case a well) is at within its progressive
history. Phases are related to business
significance and are not related to time.

Fluid Type: Definition and Values
Fluid Type is the class of principal fluid in the
wellhead stream. This facet is not intended to be a
descriptor of the fluid composition, it is a general
classification.

Well Status and Classification


The first version of the Well Status and Classification
project is now complete
This will be released to PPDM members for review
and comment in the next few weeks
The facet definitions, values and plot symbols will be
made available to industry as a whole through the
PPDM web site
Success will depend upon practical implementation
talk to your vendors and get involved
