The International Association of Oil & Gas Producers (formerly the E&P Forum) has
access to a wealth of technical knowledge and experience with its members operating
around the world in many different terrains. We collate and distil this valuable knowl-
edge for the industry to use as guidelines for good practice by individual members.
Consistent high quality database and guidelines
Our overall aim is to ensure a consistent approach to training, management and best
practice throughout the world.
The oil and gas exploration and production industry recognises the need to develop con-
sistent databases and records in certain ﬁelds. The OGP’s members are encouraged to
use the guidelines as a starting point for their operations or to supplement their own
policies and regulations which may apply locally.
Internationally recognised source of industry information
Many of our guidelines have been recognised and used by international authorities and
safety and environmental bodies. Requests come from governments and non-government
organisations around the world as well as from non-member companies.
