Well-defined sets of reference data are essential to understanding your stored data.  The problem is that everyone (data vendors, oil companies, standards organizations) seems to have their own collection of reference data.  There is no common set of reference data for exchange between organizations.  Without a proper reference data set there’s virtually no chance of creating a clean master data store.


Out of sheer necessity, Oilware has developed a robust set of reference data that we’ve used as part of our well log database client installations.  Recognizing the importance of accurate, robust reference data, we are now offering this reference data as a standalone product.
