i. Abstract

The OGC PipelineML Conceptual and Encoding Model Standard defines concepts supporting the interoperable interchange of data pertaining to oil and gas pipeline systems. PipelineML supports the common exchange of oil and gas pipeline information. This initial release of the PipelineML Core addresses two critical business use cases that are specific to the pipeline industry: new construction surveys and pipeline rehabilitation. This standard defines the individual pipeline components with support for lightweight aggregation. Additional aggregation requirements such as right-of-way and land management will utilize the OGC LandInfra standards with utility extensions in the future. Future extensions to PipelineML Core will include (non-limitative): cathodic protection, facility and safety. PipelineML was advanced by an international team of contributors from the US, Canada, Belgium, Norway, Netherlands, UK, Germany, Australia, Brazil, and Korea.

This standard assumes the reader has a basic understanding of oil and gas pipeline industry concepts.

iii. Preface

This document is a deliverable of the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) PipelineML Standards Working Group (SWG).

Version 1.0 of the PipelineML standard defined in this document solely focuses on addressing two critical business use cases within this grouping of component use cases: new construction as-built survey, and component rehabilitation surveys. This specification defines a minimal requirement for component groupings or aggregation.

The early work of the PipelineML SWG focused on defining pipeline industry use cases. We concluded these diverse set of use cases fall into three broad groups, as illustrated in the diagram below, starting with the highest level of aggregation and working toward increased specificity and granularity. The most common group of use cases are concerned with pipeline centerline or right of way. This includes such use cases as right of way management, foreign line crossings, regulatory reporting, land division, emergency response, high consequences areas (HCA) management, public awareness, and one call (call before you dig). We concluded these use cases should leverage the collaborative work of the LandInfra DWG and SWG. We expect this pending work will involve a utility-based update/extension to LandInfra that will service of the centerline/right of way needs of the pipeline industry.
