Who We Are
With the Digital Transformation under way in the upstream oil & gas industry, Energistics provides the data transfer standards that support the interconnection of all the actors from the well planning to the field production phases of an asset. Standardized data supports a faster and more reliable flow of knowledge and information, while ensuring superior levels of trust and accuracy. The participation of operators, service companies, technology companies and regulating agencies translates into standards that address the needs of all the actors. The agnostic nature of the standards developed by Energistics guarantees that data will be future-proof for use during the whole life-cycle of hydrocarbon assets.
See our brochure for an overview.
Energistics provides the global upstream oil and gas industry with an open consortium to define, develop and maintain data standards. Energistics is dedicated to informing, educating and supporting all stakeholders to ensure a rapid and effective adoption of the standards in the pursuit of interoperability, efficiency and data integrity.
Energistics liaises with other standards organizations in the energy industry through the Standards Leadership Committee (SLC), and hosts international groups with a strong emphasis on data and data exchange such as the National Data Repository Work Group (NDR)

What We Do
We provide the non-competitive, vendor-neutral infrastructure for energy industry professionals to collaborate together in order to develop, maintain, adopt and deploy standards.
This infrastructure includes a legal and organizational structure, operating guidelines, and website and other information technology (IT). It also includes vital services such as coordination, communication, event planning and hosting, continued outreach and membership development, and coordination and communication with other standards groups and professional societies.
We perform the technical implementation, testing and maintenance of all standards developed by the industry Special Interest Groups (SIGs) focused on data exchange standards.
While the SIGs do the work to define the standards, Energistics does the actual technical implementation (coding in XML) including testing, necessary documentation and posting on the Energistics website for download.
We serve as the one-stop information source for the freely available data exchange standards related to or of interest to the upstream oil and gas industry.
This includes detailed information about and access to the portfolio of standards actively managed by Energistics (WITSML, PRODML, RESQML and others) and reference, access and information to those standards supported and developed by other industry groups and professional societies that are of interest or concern to upstream oil and gas.
We unite diverse companies and industry professionals around issues and ideas to facilitate information sharing and business process integration with the overall goals of improving the operational efficiency, cost efficiency and profitability for companies operating in the upstream oil and gas sector.
Energistics initial goal was development of specifications to facilitate data sharing. While standards development and maintenance are still a vital part of what we do, we also recognize the need to support deployment and implementation of those standards for real bottom line results for the upstream oil and gas industry.
