IOGP Report 561 / S-561
This Specification augments API Spec 17D and is written as an exception style document. It gives preferred standard solutions and sets minimum requirements in interests of reaching agreed industry solutions.
It is supported by a number of supplementary documents:
- Supplier Deliverables Requirements List (SDRL)
- Purchase Order Quality Requirements (POQR)
This document was prepared by Joint Industry Project 33, Standardization of Equipment Specifications for Procurement, organized by IOGP with support by the World Economic Forum (WEF). Seventeen key Members from WEF and IOGP membership participated in JIP33 with an effort to leverage and improve industry level standardization. The scope of work has been to harmonize procurement specifications from the seventeen participating Members and develop one agreed and jointly approved specification building on recognized industry and/or international standards. This is the second of the three initial specifications to prove this concept.
The next step is for the individual operating companies to evaluate this specification and consider whether to replace their own specification with this joint specification and thereby achieve real standardization across the oil and gas industry.
