Introduction to the Professional Petroleum Data Management (PPDM) Association

The Professional Petroleum Data Management (PPDM) Association is a global not-for-profit society within the petrole-um industry that provides leadership for the professionalization of petroleum data management through the develop-ment and dissemination of best practices and standards, education programs, certification programs and professional development opportunities. PPDM represents and supports the needs of operating companies, regulators, software vendors, consulting companies and data management professionals around the globe. During this talk, I will describe how PPDM works with industry to develop standards and best practices and show examples of those. I will also talk about our certification program for Petroleum Data Analysts and describe the process in becoming a CPDA. Data chal-lenges and how PPDM can help overcome them will also be discussed and I will conclude by explaining how PPDM membership can assist you on your data journey.

Speaker Bio: Pam Koscinski has worked in the data management arena of the oil and gas industry for nearly 40 years. She has led data management initiatives in roles at the University of Oklahoma Ener-gy Center, IHS Energy, and Chesapeake Energy. Throughout her career, she has worked with industry and regulators to establish data management communities throughout the United States. Her staunch support of data standards, processes, and principles led her to be active in groups such as PIDX, PIDD, What is a Well and the US Well Identification efforts. Pam takes great pride in passing along needed knowledge to those entering the industry and those still in school hoping to secure jobs in data management. After retirement from Chesapeake, Pam worked with Noah Consulting, Land Information Services, and the Professional Petroleum Management (PPDM) Association. Pam has been involved in PPDM since the late 1980’s, served on their Board of Directors and now works exclusively for them as a consultant. Pam and her husband, Doug, have lived in Norman, Oklahoma for most of their married life, celebrating 50 years of marriage in 2016. They have two wonderful sons and daughter-in-laws, six beautiful grandchildren and love spending time with all of them.
