4.2.1 Common Oil&Gas Business Terms
So, why business terms and why oil and gas?  
Well, computer systems exist to solve business problems.  Not because geeks want to take over the world and we like bright shiny objects...  Since PPDM was based on the oil and gas industry and the author is familiar with it, let’s use it. The book will have two flows through out it; introduction of the PPDM data model and where / how to use what was introduced in capturing and creating a oil & gas metadata repository.
A foundational piece in any computer system is terminology or semantics.  I am not going to get into the semantics discussion but instead what to present approximate. 100 oil and gas business terms that can be rolled up into business functions/processes.
These terms will be mapped to corresponding places in the PPDM.
