167 suppliers, engineering contractors and operators attended the third JIP33 Industry Day at Kuala Lumpur on Monday 18 November 2019 – hosted by Petronas. Industry Days raise awareness of how JIP33 standardised specifications can deliver benefits across the oil & gas industry supply chain. They enable people to share insights about the opportunities and challenges this change in practice presents.
The Kuala Lumpur event, led by Richard Mortimer (JIP33 Steering Committee Chair) and Adri Postema featured presentations from VP’s and Senior Engineering leaders from Petronas, Saudi Aramco, Chevron, Shell and Woodside, and COO of Aker Solutions, Dean Watson.
Adri Postema, JIP33 Project Director says:
“We’ve been delighted by the response to all three events. Lots of positive feedback and valuable insights from almost 500 attendees. They represents a real shift towards greater dialogue and collaboration. This will help us deliver even better specifications and drive their adoption.
“Our thanks to BP, ENI and Petronas for hosting the Industry Days, to our expert and engaging speakers, and to everyone at the events for working together and pooling their considerable knowledge.”
The first two Industry Days were held in Houston and Milan earlier this autumn.
The International Association of Oil & Gas Producers (IOGP) initiated Joint Industry Programme 33 (JIP33) in 2016 – with support from the World Economic Forum – in response to overruns on costs and scheduling of more than 40%.
Its aim is to develop standardised specifications that improve procurement in the oil and gas industry. This will enable the supply chain to become better, cheaper and faster, making the industry more competitive and a more attractive investment proposition.
14 specifications have already been developed and are being used by operators on major projects. They are already seeing benefits.
