We report on our experience in ontology-based data access to the Slegge database at Statoil and share the resources employed in this use case: end-user information needs (in natural language), their translations into SPARQL, the Subsurface Exploration Ontology, the schema of the Slegge database with integrity constraints, and the mappings connecting the ontology and the schema.



This work was supported by EU IP Optique FP7-318338 and UK EPSRC project iTract EP/M012670. We are grateful to Statoil for allowing publication of the resources, and to everyone’s help, especially Toralv Nordtveit and Hallstein Lie.
