Production Collaboration Room

This collaboration room is the common site for parties involved in the development of the DPR and MPR XML schemas and corresponding reference data. Its purpose is to handle proposals for improvements from stakeholders and users of DPR and MPR through the open ticket system to EPIM RUF (Reports User Forum).


  • Keep a record of the versions of the XML schemas and the corresponding reference data
  • Make available all published versions of the standard, with differences between the versions (change logs)
  • Track and document all proposals for improvement to the latest version of the XML schemas
  • Enable EPIM RUF to prioritize and initiate relevant projects

The ticket system

Before you create a ticket read this.

The ticket system is one of two means for submitting your proposals to the EPIM RUF. The collaboration room is open for participation by all relevant stakeholders such as authorities, oil companies, service companies, solution providers, universities, research institutions and standardization organizations. You can also send an email to epim.production@…. Sending emails to this address will automatically result in the creation of a ticket in the ticket system.

Guidelines for EPIM RUF administrators are found here: Ticket Administration.

File repository

The file repository is available through

Files are kept in the file storage revision system called Subversion (svn). Svn has the capability to compare and find differences between different versions of a file. The changes are presented to the user in an easy to understand way. A revision history of all changes allows for arbitrary rollback in file versions and easy change control. Read more about svn and structure of the file storage.

The repository also contains other arbitrary files used in meetings, e.g. presentations.

History and Background

In 2005 a solution for Daily Production Report (DPR) was developed under the DPR project initiated by OLF. The collaboration involved: The objective of the project was to develop XML schemas for the exchange of daily production reports between operators and partners on the Norwegian Continental shelf. The reference data from the project can be found in the POSC Caesar reference data library (RDL) while the XML schemas are now included in WITSML v 1.3.1 available at
