We aim to enhance the understanding of the contribution oil and gas make, the critical role the industry plays in the energy transitions to a low-carbon energy future, and to provide an essential conduit for advocacy and debate between our industry and policymakers.

Energy Transition - Lessons Learned

Energy Transition

IOGP acts as a catalyst and an enabler to help the oil and gas industry drive ongoing and future low carbon projects and supports:

  • Standardization, enabling low carbon practices to scale up across the global industry
  • Transformative lower carbon technologies for new and existing assets


Digital Transformation: Driving digital transformation of the energy industry by enabling value, ecosystem partnership, and sustainability through scalable, standardized, and interoperable digital foundations

Geomatics: A global source for positioning advice, guidance, advocacy and formats provision for the upstream oil and gas industry

Standards: Promoting and enabling the creation of a single set of international standards that can be recognized globally and used locally worldwide
