FC: There WILL BE (some may say, already are) multiple O&G industry 
standards out there from the different standard organizations -- some open, 
some not so open.    (01)

AA: Big science and technology are increasingly converging, while Big 
Industry is increasingly diverging.    (02)

ISO announces that "ISO has developed over 17500 International Standards on 
a variety of subjects and some 1100 new ISO standards are published every 
year." http://www.iso.org/iso/iso_catalogue.htm    (03)

Only on petroleum and related products, there are as many  standards as: 
Extraction and processing of petroleum and natural gas; Crude petroleum; 
Natural gas; Petroleum products in general; Lubricants, industrial oils and 
related products; ., Equipment for petroleum and natural gas industries; 
Petroleum products and natural gas handling equipment; Including petroleum 
and natural gas storage devices, distribution systems, pipelines, petrol 
stations, dispensing devices, etc.    (04)

That strikes as a standards anarchy, seemingly motivated by profit, as Rich 
suggested. The situation is in need of ontological structuring and ordering, 
and an industry master ontology is a real help :).    (05)
