Microsoft has joined Energistics, a global, not-for-profit consortium designed to unite oil and gas industry thought leaders and to explore ways to facilitate exploration and production (E&P) information sharing and business process integration. This membership continues momentum that Microsoft and its nearly 500 oil and gas partners have built in driving a common platform as “unifying language” and a force for innovation across industry. Microsoft, along with its ecosystem of partners, has proven experience in bringing technologies and solutions to mainstream oil and gas industry. This expertise’ll be used to deliver reference implementation of Energistics’ standards such as Wellsite Information Transfer Standard Markup Language (WITSML) and Production Markup Language (PRODML), enabling oil and gas companies to increase implementation of standards while lowering adoption hurdles.
