Presentation Abstracts

------------------------ Tuesday June 21st. (UK time) ------------------------

11:00 Data Governance and the Shared Energy Data Ecosystem - Ed Evans, Open Data Institute.

There is increasing pressure and increasing need for the energy industry to share more data. The ODI has been working with organisations from every sphere that have delivered increased value from sharing data, for themselves and for others. The energy industry can learn from this experience.  Regulators often demand, hold and manage data to be shared and they may use that data to form industry policy. The regulator in this way is acting as a ‘data institution’ and is responsible for creating or at least encouraging a data sharing ecosystem. The quality and value of the data ecosystem depends on appropriate governance,  to ensure that the data and data processes can be trusted. 

Data governance, whether collecting, using or sharing data is about a comprehensive understanding of the data assets, clear accountabilities, policies and processes and the application of appropriate standards and technologies. 

This presentation will discuss recent, openly published, work by the ODI and others that leads to improved data governance in data sharing and how this applies to energy data now and the likely impact  in the future.  

I will share information about:   

  • Role of regulators and industry bodies  - soft and hard influence 
  • Data institutions - characteristics and  the role they play 
  • Open standards - when is a standard an open standard? 

I will provide Industry examples … 

  • OFGEM - data best practice for data sharing 
  • Energy Data Task Force - recommendations 
  • Open Energy - standards implementation 

The questions we can then ask ourselves …  How might better governance from the regulator increase the value of data? Why share data collected and curated at great cost and why should operators want to play?

11:30 Panel session on the role of governance in a thriving data ecosystem

  • including: Stephan Gruijters, TNO

15:00 Live, Secure Control Data in Support of the Energy Transition - Steve Aitken, Intelligent Plant

How renewable clients are managing their realtime data from their equipment with a description of EMEC, and Invinity’s Vanadium flow Batteries.

15:30 OSDU Onboarding – the Role of Data Governance and AI - Sunil Garg, dataVediK

As Oil and Gas Operators adopt OSDU, there will be a need to migrate data from hundreds of existing software systems/repositories. This will require application of Data Engineering, Master Data Management and Software Engineering principles and concepts. As OSDU evolves, new data types and APIs will get added and this will require continuous integration and deployment, necessitating the use of Agile Software Practices. In addition to populating data from structured repositories, operators can utilize this opportunity to add value from Unstructured data sources by extracting additional data and augmenting the existing data with it. Based on lessons learnt from our experience in past data migrations, data governance will be the key to success of OSDU based deployments. This presentation will focus on the various aspects of data governance best practices in the context of OSDU including Master and Reference Data Management, DQM, Data Lineage and enrichment, Golden records creation and so on. It will present some practical ways of applying and enforcing data governance processes both during the data migrations to OSDU as well as using OSDU as the system of record for feeding applications in future. It will also highlight the role that Data Analytics and AI will play in data ingestion as well as data consumption workflows and in exponentially improving the value/knowledge that can be derived out of data.

11:00 Data Governance for Low Carbon Projects - Jess Kozman & Angus Craig, Katalyst

This presentation will share how key facets of successful field-validated data governance frameworks can be adapted for new energy data types including renewable energy, carbon mitigation and environmental, social, and corporate governance (ESG) embedded data flows. Considerations include responsibilities and accountabilities for data stewards in the areas of metadata, units of measure, system of record, applicable standards, retention periods, and custody handoffs. Additional takeaways will be deployable guidelines for the role and accountability of a data asset sponsor in reviewing new data types for contractual, legal and regulatory access and delivery, including entitlements and obligations requirements.

New Energy projects and data subject areas to be considered include:

  • Geothermal energy
  • Hydrogen exploration and storage
  • Carbon capture, utilization and storage
  • Offshore wind and solar site surveys
  • Carbon offsets and ESG emissions reporting
  • Time series sensor data from remote facilities operations

11:30 The Role of Data in Finance and ESG - Francesca Bell, Offshore Energies UK

This presentation will explore the role of data in securing the billions of dollars of financial capital needed to deliver the energy transition.

Access to capital decision-making has always been data driven, and ESG data – covering environmental, social, and governance aspects of how an organization operates – are becoming increasingly important in lender decision making. For example, interest rates on loans may be linked to an organisation’s ability to credibly set, measure, and then hit emissions targets.

Good management and governance of data is no longer a niche concern, but now key to securing international investment – and key to reaching net zero by 2050.

15:00 Embracing Change - Pat Meroney, Alex Ross and Cindy Cummings, PPDM.

The Professional Development Committee has developed a foundational competency framework for petroleum data analysts that span many roles within petroleum and broader energy competency requirements. This ground-breaking body of work combined with our 2021 Career Survey results set the stage for the future state of the industry and what you need to thrive.

  • Brief introduction to the Professional Development Committee and updates on each workstream: Surveys, PD Catalogue, Outreach and Job Families.
  • Deep dive into competency framework demonstrating the value and use in guiding personal development in a fast-paced changing environment, and alignment with the Job Market Survey Results.
  • Learn how the PDC approached the expansion of the CPDA competencies and how updates to the credential may impact the exam.

15:30 Panel session on the Value of Data Management Education, including:

  • Lewis Faryma, BP
  • Fionnuala Cousins, Robert Gordon University
  • Randell McNair, Graduate, Robert Gordon University

11:00 Beyond the Theory: Data Meshes with OSDU Applied - Michael van der Haven, CGI

Late 2021 several presentations were given on the Data Mesh concept as a viable architecture to unleash data. One of those presentations was provided by yours sincerely on how OSDU can play a pivotal role in a data mesh architecture.

In this presentation a follow-up is given on a real live implementation of a data mesh. We’ll show how OSDU does indeed unleash data in a standard format, and how its application in a data mesh prevents organizations from getting into disruptive migration strategies.

Get ready for a real hands on approach where it is shown what the added value of OSDU is, how it works in a data mesh, what components were used to realize the data mesh and what process was followed.

Hands on also means showing what pitfalls to avoid and how projects for data mesh implementations can be organized (hint: collaboration is key)

11:30 Gaining Value and Insight from Unstructured Data - Lee Hatfield, Flare Solutions

Companies hold millions of unstructured data items and often fail to maximise the value of this huge resource. There are ways in which this data can be better understood and utilised to manage it better and extract more value so your organisation can benefit through reduced costs and better decision making.

This presentation will show you how to extract additional value from unstructured datasets. Utilising classification, intelligence search, OCR and analytics underpinned by taxonomies to allow you to make better understand your unstructured data  and gain significant business benefit.


15:00 The Importance of Seismic Data Quality and Standards - Jill Lewis, Troika International

Troika International has spent the last 20 years suppling domain experts to the SEG Technical Standards Committee on a voluntary basis. This has been with the sole intent of improving the SEG exchange standards. The latest SEG-Y_r2.1 format is now going through a final ratification which will lead to the ability of automatically read historic seismic data without any information loss. The SEG have recently signed an MOU with the OSDU to bring the SEG exchange standards into their platform for use in the cloud and for exchange to and from the ODSU platform. This update ensures that the industry at last has a format fit for purchase in the world of AI and ML. This talk will take you thought a high level of how this Knowledge Capture works and why it could make such a difference to Seismic Data Management into the future.

15:30 Panel session on the Role of Standards in Good Data Governance, with panelists including: - David Lecore, Head of Compliance and Data Services, North Sea Transition Authority
