Our initiatives

In addition to its Committee work, IOGP also works to improve the industry, and make a positive contribution to society through a number of external projects.

JIP 33

JIP 33 aims to achieve industry-level standardization to enable efficient procurement and support delivery of safe, reliable and competitive projects and operations across the globe.

JIP35 – Standardisation of Offshore Structures Specifications

Like JIP33, JIP35 aims to achieve industry-level standardisation, with JIP35 focusing on offshore structures design specifications to drive reductions in upstream project costs, through a decrease in variation in requirements between operating companies.


CFIHOS (Capital Facilities Information Handover Specification): making information handover quicker, easier and safer for operators, contractors, equipment manufacturers and suppliers by using standardised  specifications.
