It is now less than eight weeks to NDR 11 in
Registration has been a little slower than we
were hoping for and the teams are contacting people directly. We really
needed early registration so that we could plan the breakout discussions
in advance but never mind - if you have not registered yet please do so
now. Registration will increase to $250.00 USD on September 15th.
Registration is on http://www.energistics.org/calendar/2012/10/21/ndr11. If you have any problems or questions
please contact one of the people at the bottom of this newsletter.
Petronas is now hosting the web site for NDR
11, take a look, http://www.ndr11.com.my/index.html. If you are still trying to justify
attendance at NDR 11 we have produced a short benefits note which we can
email you on request. In outline it covers issues such as:
Why should you attend NDR meetings?
Regulators all over the world have the shared
problem of receiving, storing and releasing huge quantities of data. This
increases every year and NDRs began to emerge 20 years ago. The early
adopters in UK and Norway started an embryonic movement to get Regulators
to cooperate in developing these repositories. To date 10 global meetings
have been held in most parts of the world; UK, Norway, Canada, US,
Columbia, South Africa, India and Brazil.
In total nearly 50 different countries have
attended these meetings and they keep coming back - they see benefit.
Who will you meet there?
NDR11 will be attended by government and
regulatory agencies for E&P data from all over the world. If you have
a problem there will be someone who has the same problem, and probably
someone who has solved it.
What happens at the meetings?
They are working meetings. There are breakout
sessions where common issues and concerns are discussed. There are
reports from each country on what they are doing and lots of time to have
informal chats with people who you have identified have common problems.
Does anything come from these meetings?
Regulatory Bodies have started to meet and
build trust amongst their community. There has been help offered to
emerging oil provinces from established NDRs based on relationships built
at the meetings.
There has been an active collaboration about
production data reporting.
In these newsletters we are advertising some
of the breakout sessions - this time it is "NDR
Data Submission Standards". Both NDRs and oil
companies would benefit if NDRs were to adopt common procedures and
standards for data submission. Delegates in this session will explore
where and how this could be achieved and what has stopped collaboration
in the past. It is probable that common challenges and issues exist such
as naming standards for wells, fields, seismic surveys etc. The purpose
of this session is to identify the scope for standards and standard
procedures. There was interest in this last time in Rio but we had
difficulty getting the collaboration started.
We look forward to seing you in
