OGP’s EO Subcommittee Workshop including EARSC certification workshop (19 Nov 2014, London)

In many industries, the use of common standards benefits both the suppliers and the purchasers of products. The Oil & Gas and EO Service industries are no exceptions and this workshop seeks to look at the status of standards for geospatial information products supporting the Oil and Gas industry and how this applies particularly to the use of EO geospatial services throughout the sector.

The workshop will be divided into 3 sessions:
The morning plenary session for all attendees will look at the status of several activities having the goal to develop the use of standards for geospatial products. We shall hear from both users (purchasers) from the Oil and Gas industry and suppliers of EO information services. The goal is to develop a common understanding of what is available and what is happening to promote standards throughout the industry.

The afternoon session will be divided into two parts:
Parallel Workshops

  • O&G EO Workshop – mainly aimed at Oil & Gas geospatial experts, this workshop will look broadly at the use of geospatial products throughout the sector and where standardisation can help improve both efficacy and efficiency.
  • EO Industry Certification Workshop – mainly aimed at EO service providers, this workshop will be a follow-on to the EARSC Certification workshop held in April 2013. We shall hear from those companies which have been using the EARSC certification scheme documents, the lessons they have learned and what we have all learned from their experience.

Closing Plenary
The two parallel workshops will reconvene to present on the discussion outcomes and conclude by making recommendations on what can be done to improve the use of geospatial products and services throughout the Oil and Gas industry.
A common workshop report will be produced highlighting these recommendations.
