Aker Solutions becomes only the fourth oil services company to join the group, which serves as a global partner for industry regulators in setting standards for safety, environmental and social performance.
"Promoting a sustainable oil and gas industry is key to our company vision,” said Dean Watson, chief operating officer at Aker Solutions. “Joining IOGP allows us to collaborate with our customers, peers and other key E&P stakeholders to further this crucial effort.”
IOGP’s members produce about 40 percent of the world’s oil and gas and operate across the globe. The association is a key upstream forum used to identify and share knowledge and good practices to achieve improvements in health, safety, environmental effects, security and social responsibility.
“Given the importance of services companies to our industry, IOGP welcomes the addition of Aker Solutions to our association. We look forward to benefiting from their experience and insights across the breadth of our activities,” said IOPG’s Executive Director Gordon Ballard.
