Exploring drilling data from the Volve dataset with WITSML and R

Introduction This time we will be exploring drilling data that is stored using the industry standard WITSML. This format is widely used in the industry in drilling, completion and intervention operations, specifically for real-time surveillance. WITSML stands for Wellsite Information Transfer Standard Markup Language. It has a series of rules to save the data as a consistent schema but essentially is XML. Software developers and IT professionals in the oil industry know it very well.
