A cross-industry group working on solutions to  improve connectivity and data exchange    between key equipment and systems deployed during well construction – regardless of the provider.

D-WIS is a group of industry professionals interested in data interoperability to enable the exchange of data and facilitation of drilling automation at the rig site and beyond.  To achieve this with the minimum amount of time and effort, we encourage all parties to use standard interfaces.  Working groups meet weekly to develop standard tools to connect and communicate between the rig owner, the operator, service companies and other qualified users.  This website serves as a repository for the work product from these groups.  You can follow the latest developments via our posts, uncover the most important publications to date, and access the recommended standards as they are released.  If you are interested, you can join this effort via one or more workstreams or just monitor the big picture via our newsletters.
