The EPIM Reporting Forum (ReF) is the responsible body for maintaining and enabling enhancements to the common reports to authorities and licence partners on the Norwegian Continental Shelf. The standard XML schemas and corresponding reference data resulting from collaborative projects are under continuous development by the stakeholders in the Oil & Gas industry.

The open standards' approach invites all stakeholders to propose improvements by submitting a ticket. You can follow the development of the drilling standard in the: Collaboration Room. Here you can find all version of the XML schemas and the proposed changes.
