Currently there is a real lack of E&P Data Management metrics worldwide. Various current offerings compare the easy DB to DB comparisons. However the problem is much greater because the data has a much broader spectrum. 

  • Everyone knows that proper data management process make economic sense.  However no-one is able to quantify the value to of a data management investment, but they can see the upfront cost.
  • Various academic based initiatives have not really produced the metrics since they stay in the realms of theory and philosophy.
  • Only controlled laboratory based studies using large amounts of data and measuring the workflow efficiencies of different data management techniques, can provide real empirically based metrics.

Therefore E&P companies should be very keen to obtain the results of such an experiment but only if the cost are shared and minimised.

This workshop will explore a regression analysis of the The Quality of a Decision “Dq” and the terms in which it can be expressed with Dq being primarily a function of:

  • The level of appropriate knowledge & expertise of the person/team relevant to the domain in which the decision is being made -are the appropriate people making the decision?
  • The integrity of the input data used for making the decision - as they say “rubbish in, rubbish out”!
  • The Volume Data Sample Ratio of data used compared to the total information available for making the decision - i.e. is the sample statistically representative

These can then be taken as the primary parameters effecting the Quality of a Decision

The workshop will be focused on initiating a discussion on the need for metrics and maybe doing something about it for once. 

About your workshop leader:
Waclaw Jakubovics, MD, Hampton Data Service


Hampton Data Services provides the design, data capture, implementation and support services that ensure E&P data and knowledge distributed in the  corporate LAN, data warehouse/archive, workstation or personal folders,  are structured and integrated with  new knowledge and information system. 

Hampton data Services has  the experience, expertise and knowledge to extract the best possible digital data results from poor hardcopy documents, put structure into unstructured data in warehouses and silos and prepare content  for project and corporate EDMS, ECM, EDRM systems.

Hampton Data Services with its  local partners can assist you in delivering a fully-itemized catalogue of all your available E&P data, audit  its physical state and determine its distribution and location, allowing mapping of the various “data islands” and  provide the basis for the design of an integrated solution.  From such an audit , an informed decision can be made as to what data is available and what can be captured and digitally  transcribed. Our team is then available to proceed to recover the files, documents and proceed with scanning, digitizing, data migration from digital data repositories and data conditioning as required.

After the process is completed, searching and finding distributed E&P data couldn’t be simpler. Our process and services have matured after  each project implementation where E&P professionals have added  the essential "need to have" features to the process making our  solutions and fit for purpose. At the centre of the service provision and data staging for corporate EDMS /ECM systems is our flagship product GeoSCOPE.

There are many implementations worldwide, ranging from 5 to 500 users, with small Independents, Majors and NOC's.

CPD stands for Continuing Professional Development’. It is essentially a philosophy, which maintains that in order to be effective, learning should be organised and structured. The most common definition is:

‘A commitment to structured skills and knowledge enhancement for Personal or Professional competence’

CPD is a common requirement of individual membership with professional bodies and Institutes. Increasingly, employers also expect their staff to undertake regular CPD activities.

Undertaken over a period of time, CPD ensures that educational qualifications do not become obsolete, and allows for best practice and professional standards to be upheld.

CPD can be undertaken through a variety of learning activities including instructor led training courses, seminars and conferences, e:learning modules or structured reading.


There are approximately 470 institutes in the UK across all industry sectors, with a collective membership of circa 4 million professionals, and they all expect their members to undertake CPD.

For some institutes undertaking CPD is mandatory e.g. accountancy and law, and linked to a licence to practice, for others it’s obligatory. By ensuring that their members undertake CPD, the professional bodies seek to ensure that professional standards, legislative awareness and ethical practices are maintained.

CPD Schemes often run over the period of a year and the institutes generally provide online tools for their members to record and reflect on their CPD activities.


Professional bodies and Institutes CPD schemes are either structured as ‘Input’ or ‘Output’ based.

‘Input’ based schemes list a precise number of CPD hours that individuals must achieve within a given time period. These schemes can also use different ‘currencies’ such as points, merits, units or credits, where an individual must accumulate the number required. These currencies are usually based on time i.e. 1 CPD point = 1 hour of learning.

‘Output’ based schemes are learner centred. They require individuals to set learning goals that align to professional competencies, or personal development objectives. These schemes also list different ways to achieve the learning goals e.g. training courses, seminars or e:learning, which enables an individual to complete their CPD through their preferred mode of learning.

The majority of Input and Output based schemes actively encourage individuals to seek appropriate CPD activities independently.

As a formal provider of CPD certified activities, SMI Group can provide an indication of the learning benefit gained and the typical completion. However, it is ultimately the responsibility of the delegate to evaluate their learning, and record it correctly in line with their professional body’s or employers requirements.


Increasingly, international and emerging markets are ‘professionalising’ their workforces and looking to the UK to benchmark educational standards. The undertaking of CPD is now increasingly expected of any individual employed within today’s global marketplace.
