Introduction
The International Association of Oil & Gas Producers (IOGP) organized a workshop 1011 May
2012, in London, within the scope of electrical standards and practices for the oil and gas industry
for electrical technology specialists of IOGP Members and invited guests.

The objectives of the workshop were to:

arrange for global networking amongst the specialists

review and discuss the available standards for electrical installations, ongoing standards
work and existing company specifications related to this discipline

evaluate the needs for improvements of available industry, national or regional standards or
company specifications and harmonization with international standards in this area

evaluate the need for new electrical standards work in the oil and gas industry

share company and/or personal experience regarding electrical installations, standards and
practices.

Within the goal for the workshop was also to identify and prioritize improvements to available
standards or the need for new international (IEC) standards in the electrical area for the benefit of
the global oil and gas industry.

A draft of this report was initially prepared as a basis for this workshop and, following input from
this workshop, IOGP has established the Electrical Standards Subcommittee with the same
objectives as for the workshop. The Subcommittee has subsequently agreed to complete this
document as an IOGP reference report including input from its Members and a benchmarking
exercise in 2013.

This report should be seen in conjunction with the following IOGP reports:

Report 362, Catalogue of international standards used in the petroleum and natural gas
industries (February 2012) where a number of IEC standards are identified

Report 381, Position paper on the development and use of international standards (March
2010) outlining the importance of IEC standards

Report 426, Regulators use of standards (March 2010) including some references to IEC
standards

Report 450, Benchmarking on the use of internal technical specifications and external
standards by some oil & gas companies (February 2011).

Purpose of report
The purpose of this report is to provide a list of some of the available and relevant international,
regional, national and industry electrotechnical standards for the oil and gas industries as seen by
the participants of the IOGP Electrical Standards Subcommittee. This report is not exhaustive in
any way and there may well be other relevant electrotechnical standards for the oil and gas
industries.
