IOGP International Association Of Oil Gas Producers

IOGP International Association of Oil & Gas Producers

The International Association of Oil & Gas Producers (IOGP) is the petroleum industry's global forum in which members identify and share best practices to achieve improvements in health, safety, the environment, security, social responsibility, engineering and operations.

IOGP was formed in London in 1974 to develop effective communications between the upstream industry and the network of international regulators. Originally called the E&P Forum (for oil and gas exploration and production), in 1999 the name International Association of Oil & Gas Producers IOGP was adopted. Most of the world’s leading publicly traded, private and state-owned oil & gas companies, oil & gas associations and major upstream service companies are members. IOGP members produce 40% of the world’s oil and gas.

IOGP also represent the interests of the upstream industry before international regulators and legislators in UN bodies such as the International Maritime Organization and the Commission for Sustainable Development. IOGP also works with the World Bank and with the International Organization for Standardization (ISO). It is also accredited to a range of regional bodies that include OSPAR, the Helsinki Commission and the Barcelona Convention, and provides a conduit for advocacy and debate between the upstream industry and the European Union (EU). This involves regular contact with the European Commission and the European Parliament.

Every year, IOGP collects and publishes data on upstream operations worldwide, both onshore and offshore, from participating member companies and their contractor employees. The reports are free and publicly available. The IOGP reports cover:

Occupational safety

Environmental performance

Process safety events

Health management

Land transport safety

Aviation safety

Occupational safety

Since 1985, when IOGP started reporting annual trends in upstream safety data, there have been considerable improvements in industry performance.


Today, it is the industry’s largest database of safety performance, covering participating member company employees and their contractors onshore and offshore, worldwide. Fatal incidents are analysed by incident category, activity and associated causal factors, and incident descriptions are provided for fatal incidents and high potential events.


IOGP has collected and published environmental data from its participating member companies on an annual basis since 2001. The objectives of this programme are to allow member companies to compare their performance with other companies in the sector; and increase transparency of industry operations. The reports aggregate information at both global and regional levels, expressed within six environmental indicator categories:

Gaseous emissions

Energy consumption


Aqueous discharges

Non-aqueous drilling fluids retained on cuttings discharged to sea

Spills of oil and chemicals

Process safety events:

Process safety is a disciplined framework for managing the integrity of operating systems and processes that handle hazardous substances. It relies on good design principles, engineering and operating and maintenance practices. The process safety events (PSE) data are based on the numbers of Tier 1 and Tier 2 process safety events reported by participating IOGP member companies, separately for:

Onshore and offshore

Drilling and production



Material released

The data are normalized against work hours associated with drilling and production activities to provide PSE rates.

Health management:

IOGP (with IPIECA) has developed two tools to assess health leading performance indicators within individual companies. These enable performance comparison between different parts of a company and between participating companies. The annual health leading performance indicators report illustrates the results submitted by participating companies for both tools and includes actual anonymous results for the year by company, trends over time and the potential benefits to health management in the industry. Land transport safety In April 2005, IOGP published Report No. 365, Land transportation safety recommended practice, a guideline designed to be applicable to all land transportation activities in the upstream oil and gas industry, including operators, contractors and subcontractors. IOGP collects data on motor vehicle crashes and information submitted by participating member companies are published from 2008 onwards. Data are broken down by region and crash category. Data are further grouped to indicate the number of crashes that resulted in a rollover. This includes:

Number of Motor Vehicle Crash (MVC) fatalities

Number of Motor Vehicle Crashes for each reporting group and category

Motor vehicle crash rate (Motor Vehicle Crashes per million kilometres) for each reporting group and category.

In 2018, IOGP published its Global Production Report. It is based on the latest BP Statistical Review of World Energy[6] and establishes an IOGP Production Indicator (PI) – 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 so can export.

IOGP production indicators for oil and gas in seven regions.

The main conclusion of the report is that demand growth and the annual depletion rate of 6% of existing fields are driving the need for investment to gain additional volumes. Such investment will depend on regional and local policies that encourage responsible resource development.

European Petroleum Survey Group

In 2005, IOGP absorbed the European Petroleum Survey Group or EPSG (1986–2005) into its structure. EPSG was a scientific organization with ties to the European petroleum industry consisting of specialists working in applied geodesy, surveying, and cartography related to oil exploration. EPSG compiled and disseminated the EPSG Geodetic Parameter Set, a widely used database of Earth ellipsoids, geodetic datums, geographic and projected coordinate systems, units of measurement, etc.
