ARPEL participated of the first global industry associations meeting

  • ARPEL participated in a global oil and gas industry associations meeting in Houston, USA, on February 21st. The main topic of discussion was how associations can support the industry by promoting the case for oil and gas (COG) in an ever-increasing critical environment. The meeting was hosted by the International Association of Geophysical Contractors (IAGC).

    The International Association of Oil and Gas Producers (IOGP) presented its efforts to promote the COG on a global basis (ongoing since 2016). ARPEL, together with SPE, API and IPIECA, has already fostered good working relationship with IOGP in this international endeavor. This network would now be extended to also include IAGC and other like-minded organizations.

    In a next step, it is envisioned to create an online repository (reached via a limited access portal) that would include links to existing COG communications material from network members and a regularly updated shared calendar of relevant events and speech opportunities.

    This would allow for a proper coordination of international industry associations and support the efforts for the oil and gas sector to be adequately represented in those forums that can determine the success in prolonging companies’ license to operate.

    Details of this and how a network would work best from an operational point of view will be addressed in 2Q 2019. ARPEL will remain closely linked in.

    ARPEL expresses its gratitude to Richie Miller from Spectrum, member of the ARPEL Board of Directors, which represented the Association at this first meeting.
