We are the global voice of our industry, pioneering excellence in safe, efficient, and sustainable energy supply – an enabling partner for a low carbon future.
Our Members, integrated energy companies, national oil companies, independent upstream operators, service companies, and industry associations operate around the globe, supplying over 40% of the world’s oil and gas demand. For almost 50 years, we have been serving the upstream industry as a unique forum to share know-how and good practices in the areas of safety, health, environment, engineering and, now, industry and energy transitions. We work with over 2,250 experts from our Member organizations to identify and share knowledge and good practices to improve performance across the industry.
From our four regions – Americas, Asia Pacific, Europe, Middle East & Africa – we address a variety of stakeholders, including international and regional bodies, authorities, regulators, and the broader public. IOGP Europe provides an essential conduit for advocacy and debate between our industry and the European Union and its policymakers. Our other regional offices seek to represent our Members interests, deepen our existing relationships, and support industry adoption of IOGP and international good practices.
A unique forum for the upstream industry since 1974
Our work is supported by sound science and data and we publish dozens of updated guidance documents per year. These are freely available in our library of over 600 reports. Our most popular publications are the Life Saving Rules, Process Safety Fundamentals, Safety, Health & Environment Performance Indicators, and Sustainability Reporting Guidance.
We have the largest collection of safety and environment performance data in the oil and gas industry which allows benchmarking for performance improvement. We also manage Joint Industry Projects, for example JIP33 – Standardizing Procurement Specifications, which has now produced 55 specifications aiming to make our supply chain better, faster and cheaper.
