Petroleum Symbols in ArcGIS Pro

ArcGIS Pro is the premier professional desktop GIS application for creating and working with 2D and 3D spatial data. With Petroleum customers now using ArcGIS Pro to create map products, the Natural Resources team have worked closely with the Petroleum community and our ArcGIS Pro development team to streamline the way you create maps using industry standard symbols.

Shell Standard Legend

Shell developed a comprehensive cartographic symbol set to support hydrocarbon exploration and petroleum engineering called the ‘Shell Standard Legend’. In January of 2014, IOGP published this article which provided Esri style files for all organizations to use.

The Shell Standard – Red and Shell Standard – Green along with a very recent update of their true type fonts have been hosted within Esri’s official style gallery so that you can use them directly within ArcGIS Pro.

Professional Petroleum Data Management (PPDM) Association

PPDM is a global, not-for-profit society within the Petroleum industry. As part of their support for operating companies, regulators, consulting companies, and data management  professionals, they have a widely adopted industry standard symbology.

We have created the ArcGIS Pro version of this popular PPDM style file and hosted it within Esri’s style gallery along with the Shell styles mentioned above.

To learn how to use the Esri hosted Shell styles and the PPDM within ArcGIS Pro, please follow the steps listed in this blog article from Chait Gaddam.

Moving forward, the Natural Resources team will be providing more direct, industry specific product integrations (additional style files, field data collection templates, code samples, and more) so that our community can improve the way they leverage Esri products within their organization.

Well count aggregation web map

By Mark Smithgall, Esri Cartographer

Well Map Aggregetation Web Count - Thumbnail

This well count aggregation web map shows how a complex data source, such as gas wells in a producing field, can be aggregated and portrayed in an easy-to-understand manner.  This was designed as an ArcGIS Online web map to show the aggregation number as a proportional symbol of wells per administrative area.  In this case, three levels of aggregation were used based on the most logical administrative areas:  parishes, Public Land Survey System (PLSS) townships, and PLSS sections.

Building an Enterprise GIS – Best Practices, Design Strategies and Performance Benchmarks

Oil and gas organizations are increasingly recognizing the value of implementing GIS across the enterprise. GIS data is rapidly increasing in its relevance to a wide range of departments, including exploration and production, land management, health and safety, and business operations. No longer are GIS datasets limited to shapefiles on a single user’s desktop.

IT departments may not always be familiar with GIS data and the workflows used to create, manage and distribute this information. Esri provides several online resources to assist you in building a secure, stable, scalable and high-performance enterprise GIS system. Here are some key resources:

  • An Enterprise GIS Resource Center designed to help IT professionals implement a sustainable enterprise GIS by presenting best practices, patterns, and guidance in the areas of security, performance, and application architecture.
  • A comprehensive System Design Strategies Wiki that describes in detail the Esri system architecture design methodology and the fundamental principles that contribute to system performance and scalability.

  • A System Architecture Design Strategies instructor-led course that covers GIS infrastructure architecture alternatives and system architecture design strategies that support successful enterprise operations.

If you would like additional information or assistance in planning your enterprise GIS needs, please contact us.
