Developing capabilities to read and write Energistics standards-based data used to involve becoming familiar with a number of technologies. FESAPI, developed by French consulting company F2I-Consulting in collaboration with energy companies, provides a simple API to use Energistics data classes in C++, C# or Java without needing to get involved in the underlying packaging, binary file systems or XML. This sharply reduces the time needed to develop these capabilities while ensuring better compliance with the the standards.

The White Paper is available in US Letter or A4 format for reading and/or download on the Energistics website’s Library.

The White Paper also describes an initiative to expand the scope of FESAPI involving international operators ExxonMobil and Total, and a software technology company Dynamic Graphics Inc. Other companies interested in supporting this initiative are welcome to join.
