What is Playbackable?


An oilfield term used to describe a condition that does not need to be corrected right away. For instance, a minor mistake which can be corrected later is deemed "playbackable."

The word originated when oilfield data was kept on computer tapes, and in order to re-access the data, the tape had to be played back.


Terry: "I can't believe I just spent my last $20 at the craps table. Too bad my bet isn't playbackable."

Example 2:

Jim: "I just computed some data with the wrong model."

Tom: "Don't worry, it's playbackable."

See oilfield, data, computer, problem, lost time, goof, mistake
