What is WITSML?

WITSMLWITSML is the acronym for well-site information transfer standard markup language. It is a standard for transmitting well-site data from the rig to different stakeholders in the oil and gas industry. WITSML allows for the drilling rig or offshore platform to communicate data to the producing oil company operating the rig and to other stakeholders.

United uses WITSML to acquire the data from the MWD and LWD tools that our clients use to monitor the drilling of their wells, it allows us to geosteer the wells with constant updates from the drilling rigs. Using WITSML as the engine for data retrieval it allows us to have seamless sharing of data from the drilling rig to our geosteering service and therefore we help you stay within your sweetspot.

Our geosteering software is compatible with all major WITSML providers. These include:

  • Pason US and Canada
