IOGP Pulse – October 2020

Welcome to Pulse

If anything drives our industry – besides the dedication and commitment to improving the lives of billions of people – it’s data. The same is true for the work of IOGP. This Pulse edition takes a close look the Association’s new data website and the latest Safety Data Report. We also introduce the new Report 633 – Risk Based Assessments of Offshore Produced Water Discharges and outline this year’s virtual Extraordinary General Meeting. We hope you will enjoy the read.
