Narrative: Well status and classification values are used to help group wells on the basis of information about the state or function of each well. Created independently by many organizations and agencies over many decades, these values include some of the most widely abused terms in the oil and gas industry. Indeed, many different terms and definitions are used with very little consistency in terms of terminology or usage (intended meaning). Most sets of terms or codes are defined poorly, or contain no definition at all. For example, “active” is a commonly used well status value that has many different intended (and usually undocumented) uses across regions, companies, software application or operational divisions. This results in miscommunications that have a real impact to the bottom-line of a business. Working collaboratively with industry, the Professional Petroleum Data Management (PPDM) Association has decomposed well status information to identify the different of information contained in a well status value. This presentation will explore this concept and the many interrelated issues.
