Standards ensure that data from one system are properly understood by any other system using the same standard. In an energy industry that is increasingly collaborative, and for which technology solutions frequently involve a number of different partners and providers, standards enable both a rapid deployment and a reliable operation.

The process to develop standards is critical to their relevance to business and their wide-spread adoption.  With the backing of the major operators, service companies and technology vendors as well as regulatory agencies, Energistics is focused on delivering industry-endorsed upstream data transfer standards, as well as innovative data transfer protocols that dramatically reduce data latency.

Developing Standards

A consistent collaborative process enables the Energistics community to develop standards that benefit the entire industry.  Special Interest Groups (SIGs) bring together the skills and business insights needed to develop and continuously improve the standards under their responsibility.  The process is open and transparent, and involves a Steering Committee, an executive or operations team, a technical team and where necessary Work Groups or sub-teams.
