Industry Data Model

Upstream Oil & Gas

The upstream segment of oil and gas industry encompasses exploration and production (E&P) activities related to exploring for, recovery and production of crude oil, natural gas, and natural gas liquids (NGLs).

ADRM Software's Upstream Oil & Gas data model set consists of Enterprise, Business Area, and Data Warehouse logical data models that address the information requirements of upstream oil and gas companies engaged in any or all of the three primary upstream functions:

Oil and gas which is produced and brought to the surface is either temporarily stored locally or immediately offloaded into midstream infrastructure or transportation options such as trucks or railcars. Upstream oil and gas activities entail high risk and are information and capital intensive. Upstream oil and gas activities are also highly regulated in terms of pricing, taxation, drilling rights and reserve calculations. The primary participants are the major oil companies, national oil companies (NOC's), Independents, and oilfield services companies.

Many upstream oil and gas organizations are also involved in trading activities, often for the purpose of hedging their anticipated future production, and may therefore be interested to learn more about ADRM's Energy Trading Solution Model.
