After many years of hard work on the part of countless individuals, today we submitted the abstract specification along with an encoding standard for PipelineML to the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) for consideration of approval. We intentionally kept the scope of this first version small and focused only on defining the characteristics of the coterminous components (linepipe, meters, valves, reducers, etc.), appurtenances (casings, coatings, sleeves, etc.), and connectors (girthwelds, tees, taps, etc.). By limiting the scope to only these pipeline assets, it leaves the future open to aligning with other existing standards, as well as expansion into other areas as we partner with other subject matter experts. We are looking forward to seeing how the OGC receives this proposal, and where we go from here.
