Standards : Energistics, OSDU, BIM


Together with some of the most influential petroleum companies like Total, BP, Exxon, Chevron, Shell, Eni, Petrobras and software for Geosciences providers like Schlumberger, Halliburton, Baker Hugues,  Emerson Paradigm, Emerson Roxar, Petrolink,  DGI, Geosiris has joined the Energistics consortium from 2012 ( in order to participate to the design and adoption of the RESQML data model, which aims at becoming a standard for exchanging geo-modeling data. GEOSIRIS develops for this consortium an Exploration / edition / validation tools on premise and as a web Server which could be used on the cloud (the Resqml Web Studio).

Now, GEOSIRIS has joined The OpenGroup OSDU Forum to contribute to the interaction between Energistics and OSDU Standard and participate with the EGIS Company to provide interaction between RESQML and CAD/CAM software like Civil 3D / Autodesk in order to address integration of Geosciences Entities in the BIM.


During the last years, GEOSIRIS has provided services to Total and other Geoscience software vendors for IT consulting and development in relation with the RESQML model. Geosiris uses the generic Energistics Standards API developed by the F2I Cy ( to transfer geo-modeling information from proprietary software to RESQML V2 model instances. GEOSIRIS also aims at producing – for the benefit of the Energistics consortium – a dedicated Explorer/Editor/Validator toolkit for managing RESQML V2 instances.

You can access to the tool with the following link : select Editor Validator Tool, Documentation and more

GEOSIRIS also developped a new RESQML Web Studio covering from 2.0.1 to V2.2 RESQML instances as presented below.

GEOSIRIS worked with EGIS to develop an Civil3D (Autocad) plugin. This tool works with the Resqml V2.2 standard.

The v2.2 RESQML format, developed by the oil consortium Energistics for
the exchange of entire 3D geological models with their borehole data between geomodeling programs, has been chosen by EGIS to transfer with interoperability (BIM level 3) their 3D models created with GDM-Multilayer to Autodesk Civil-3D.
