  • Safety performance indicators – 2018 data
    IOGP Report 2018s – Safety performance indicators – 2018 data.

  • The IOGP safety performance indicators – 2018 data report summarises the safety performance of contributing IOGP member companies for 2018 based on the analysis of 3,066 million work hours of data.

    Submissions were made by 46 of the 56 operating company IOGP Members and cover operations in 103 countries.

    The key performance indicators (KPI) used to benchmark safety performance are:

    • number of fatalities

    • fatal accident and incident rates

    • total recordable injury rate, and

    • lost time injury frequency.

    Against the background of a 2% increase in work hours reported, the number of fatalities has decreased from 33 in 2017 to 31 in 2018. The resulting fatal accident rate (FAR) of 1.01 is 8% lower than last year.

  • Safety Leadership in Practice
    IOGP Report 453 – Safety Leadership in Practice: A Guide for Managers


  • Knowledge doesn’t stand still. IOGP published Report 452 – Shaping safety culture through safety leadership in October 2013, but in the years since then, our industry has gained a huge amount of experience and insight into how workplace cultures are formed. This document aims to make that insight and experience available to you.

    We know, for instance, that rules alone don’t drive behaviour, and that even the best trained, most diligent, and well-motivated people can make mistakes. All of us thrive when we work in an environment we can trust, with tasks and systems that are designed to reduce the potential for error. This is enabled by the culture of the organisation.

    For an organisation to be successful, leaders work to shape the culture by the priorities that they set and their engagement with the workforce. We hope that, with this guide, leaders can develop ideas for practical action to shape the culture and success of their organisation.

    This guide has been developed to be used in conjunction with IOGP Report 452 – Shaping safety culture through safety leadership. This report is designed to support senior and/or middle management and supervisors in applying the Safety Leadership Characteristics described in Report 452 and creating a workplace culture that values safety.

  • A look at regional supply of – and demand for – oil and gas the world over

    This report looks at production and demand figures in all producing regions: Africa, Asia/Pacific, the CIS, Europe, the Middle East, North America and Central and South America, for both oil and gas. These data are drawn from the BP Statistical Review of World Energy of June, 2019.

    For each of the regions, we have devised an IOGP Production Indicator© for oil and gas. It shows to what degree a region can meet its own demand. While IOGP supports global trade, we also recognize the advantages that come with indigenous production of oil and gas. These include greater prosperity and enhanced security of supply.

    Complementing our analysis are projections for each region. Some are based on publicly available material. Others represent the views of IOGP member companies and organizations and specialists from the Association’s secretariat.
