The International Association of Oil & Gas Producers (IOGP) is the voice of the global upstream industry.

Our Members produce over 40% of the world’s oil and gas, operating in all key producing regions.

We act as a uniquely upstream forum in which our Members identify and share data, knowledge and good practices to achieve improvements in health, safety, environment, security and social responsibility.

  • MEXICO CITY, January 29, 2020 – The International Association of Oil & Gas Producers (IOGP), the American Petroleum Institute (API) and the Asociación Mexicana de Empresas de Hidrocarburos (AMEXHI) today signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) formalizing their mutual cooperation to strengthen their working relationship and joint efforts to help advance operational performance across North America operations.

    The MOU paves the way for enhanced coordination amongst the three associations, including joint forums on specific issues; technical workshops on topics such as Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR), offshore safety, digital oil fields or hydraulic fracturing; as well as sharing of best practices on environmental performance, emergency response and many other areas pertaining to oil and gas operations.

    The three associations will also work jointly on specific projects to promote advancement in areas such as health and safety performance, environmental protection in the Gulf of Mexico, legal frameworks and even cybersecurity.

    “Today’s MOU was the natural way forward for our associations – it will help boost the operational performance of the oil and gas industry in Central and North America, including more consistent operational practices in the Gulf of Mexico. Partnering with API and AMEXHI will help to enhance safety, health, environmental protection and sustainability across our industry’s operations in the region,” IOGP Director of Americas Wafik Beydoun said.

    “API furthers safe and efficient operations around the world through world-class standards and best practices. Through this MOU, our associations will collaborate and share best practices on ways to improve safety, environmental protection and sustainability across oil and gas operations in the Gulf of Mexico,” API Senior Vice President of Global Industry Services Debra Phillips said.

    “For AMEXHI, this MOU represents the opportunity to implement in Mexico the best international practices in the operations of the oil and gas industry. Mexico benefits from this agreement by having available experiences and solutions to complex situations presented in other countries. Collaboration with API and IOGP will strengthen operations throughout the region, which will add great value to the global industry,” AMEXHI General Director Merlin Cochran said.

  • (London, 29 November 2018) In most regions of the world, oil & gas demand has risen or reached all-time highs in 2017, highlighting the significant need for investments to keep up production levels, IOGP’s new Global Production Report shows.

    Records for oil & gas demand were set in Africa, Asia Pacific and the Middle East, and demand came close to historic highs in North America, Europe and Central & South America. The current depletion rate of 6% in most existing fields implies that significant investments will be needed to meet this demand in the foreseeable future. Regional and local policies can encourage the responsible development of resources needed to do so.

    The IOGP Production Indicator© (PI) indicates the level at which a region is able to meet its own oil or gas demand – for seven regions across the world. A PI higher than 100% means the region produces more than it needs to meet its own requirements and can therefore export.

    Production
    Indicator
    Africa CIS Middle
    East
    Central &
    South America
    North
    America
    Europe Asia
    Pacific
    Oil 200% 334% 340% 106% 83% 23% 23%
    Gas 159% 142% 123% 103% 101% 45% 79%

    The Report’s data shows three distinct groups of regions when it comes to supply/demand balance: net importers (Europe, Asia Pacific) self-sufficient ones (Central & South America and North America), and those that are net exporters of oil & gas (Africa, CIS and the Middle-East).

    Natural gas production and demand have grown significantly since the 2008-2009 financial crisis. The rising demand trend could well turn a number of exporting regions into net importers in the coming years, including large ones such as Africa and Central & South America.

    “We are facing a dual challenge: a strong demand for oil & gas, and a 6% depletion rate of existing fields. We need to work with policymakers to mobilize the resources needed to meet this demand on the long term.” says IOGP Executive Director, Gordon Ballard.

  • With the revision of Report 459, IOGP launches a simplified set of Life-Saving Rules to provide workers in the industry with the actions they can take to protect themselves and their colleagues from fatalities. IOGP aims to improve the level of industry-wide adoption across the global oil and gas industry. The reduced number of rules (nine) still cover a similar scope to that of the original 18 Life-Saving Rules: since 2008, 376 lives could have been potentially saved by following the revised IOGP Life-Saving Rules. IOGP Report 459 introduces the revised IOGP Life-Saving Rules, provides implementation guidance and the background data analysis.

  • Between 2010-2014, 75% of large E&P projects exceeded budget by 50% on average, and 50% of projects exceeded schedule by almost 40%.

    Participating companies include:

    BP, Chevron, ConocoPhillips, Eni, Equinor, ExxonMobil, Petrobras, Petronas, Saudi Aramco, Shell, Total, Woodside.

    Published specifications include:

    HV and LV switchgear, subsea trees, ball valves, piping valves and materials, air compressors, air driers, heat exchangers, centrifugal pumps, line pipe material, offshore cranes to API and EN standards, and pressure vessels.

    JIP33 standards provide mutual benefits

    Standardisation will create a mutually-beneficial outcome for industry by addressing safety, cost, schedule, quality and reliability

  • A look at regional supply of – and demand for – oil and gas the world over

    This report looks at production and demand figures in all producing regions: Africa, Asia/Pacific, the CIS, Europe, the Middle East, North America and Central and South America, for both oil and gas. These data are drawn from the BP Statistical Review of World Energy of June, 2019.

    For each of the regions, we have devised an IOGP Production Indicator© for oil and gas. It shows to what degree a region can meet its own demand. While IOGP supports global trade, we also recognize the advantages that come with indigenous production of oil and gas. These include greater prosperity and enhanced security of supply.

    Complementing our analysis are projections for each region. Some are based on publicly available material. Others represent the views of IOGP member companies and organizations and specialists from the Association’s secretariat.
