The oil and gas sector and the energy transition require safe, reliable, cost-effective and sustainable facilities and operations. The accelerated use of international standards will be essential for achieving business objectives and showing environmental stewardship to secure and maintain lower carbon energy supply. This ONS 2022 standardization session will be a key event to attend to get latest news regarding international standardization.
Successful OTC 2022 Sessions 4-5 May 2022 in Houston - Highlighting Standardization for Efficient Energy Transition and supporting The Path to Net-Zero
A successful and historic first OTC standardization panel session took place Thursday 5 May 2022 in Houston: "How Unified International Standards Enable Efficiency in the Energy Transition". It was organized by the Offshore Technology Conference (OTC) standardization subcommittee consisting of ISO - International Organization for Standardization, IOGP and sponsoring societies SNAME and ASME. The panel session was established for collaborating to promote the standardization topic at OTC. The panel was a continuation of the OTC Technical Session “Standardization Throughout the Project Life Cycle" held Wednesday 4 May 2022.
How to write sound, verifiable technical requirements, including requirements for quality and conformity assessment and reliability and cost, and what is the ISO Oline Browsing Platform and how to use it?
As companies move toward a cleaner energy future, unified international standards will be a critical component for achieving business success through improved environmental stewardship.
A new 1st edition of ISO/TS 3250 “Calculation and reporting production efficiency in the operating phase” has been published 31 August 2021.
"Time flies when you're having fun". Seven months have passed since the publication of our previous issue. During this period, a lot has happened. This issue looks back on a successful series of virtual meetings and workshop sessions, and sheds light on the next steps regarding our possible scope extension and our cooperation with API and IOGP.

A new 1st edition of ISO 15663 ‘’Life cycle costing’’, as developed by the ISO/TC67/WG4 has been published 25 February 2021.
On Monday 12 October the International Association of Oil and Gas Producers (IOGP) and ISO/TC 67 organized two virtual workshops on contemporary opportunities for standardization in the oil and gas industry: Lower carbon and Information and standards digitalization. Mr Richard Mortimer, chair of the IOGP standards committee moderated both workshops which included a perceptive panel discussion with all presenters.
ISO/TC 67 has published the latest issue of its quarterly Communiqué. Digital transformation of standards was already a hot topic; now all standards development activities have also entered the digital arena. As can be read in the Communiqué, ISO/TC 67 continues to deliver standards needed by the oil and gas sector in close cooperation with stakeholders and good coordination with other standards bodies. Talking about transformation and oil and gas, in view of the transition towards a low carbon emission economy, ISO/TC 67 also started reviewing its scope as members share the view that the scope does not totally reflect their today’s and tomorrow’s activities. This perfectly fits to the theme of this year’s edition of World Standards Day “Protecting the Planet with standards”. ISO/TC 67 will celebrate World Standards Day on the first day of the 2-day virtual plenary meeting on 14 and 15 October 2020.

Since 2003, the oil and gas sector applies their own quality management system technical specification for suppliers: ISO/TS 29001. This specification supplements ISO 9001 that provides general requirements. The publication of ISO 9001:2015 was reason for the oil and gas sector to revise ISO/TS 29001:2010 and transform this document into an ISO standard. ISO 29001:2020 was published on 15 May 2020 and is available for implementation.
“Houston, we’ve got a problem”. Certainly not! ISO/TC 67 held its 39th plenary meeting in Houston on 18 and 19 September 2019, after a kind invitation from ANSI – the US member of ISO – and BP that provided the meeting facilities.
