IOGP is the single association representing companies and associations engaged in the exploration and production of oil and natural gas both at global and at EU level, with offices in London and Brussels.

At EU level, IOGP represents members who are active in Europe. IOGP Brusses office participates in the Berlin Fossil Fuels Forum, the Madrid European Gas Regulatory Forum as well as other consultative groups set up by the European Commission, and it is the prime interlocutor for energy policy, environmental and other issues related to this industry.

Globally, IOGP’s worldwide membership accounts for more than half of the world’s oil output and about one third of global gas production. IOGP fosters cooperation in the area of health, safety and the environment, operations and engineering, and represents the industry before international organisations, such as the UN, IMO and the World Bank, as well as regional seas conventions, such as OSPAR, where it has observer status.
