Industry-wide standardisation is needed for operators to manage the $3 trillion in CAPEX expenditure forecast for 2018-2025 (Global Data, 2018), while maintaining competitiveness and mitigating risks.

One area where greater standardisation can be achieved is by operators and regulators endorsing one industry standard for each topic, and for organisations to minimise or remove additional company-specific requirements. The International Oil & Gas Producers Association (IOGP) are driving this activity.

With the backing of the World Economic Forum, IOGP Joint Industry Project JIP 33 was initiated to drive industry-level standardisation for procuring equipment. Following the early success of JIP33 for equipment packages, the IOGP Offshore Structures subcommittee created IOGP JIP 35 covering the design of steel and concrete offshore structures, topsides, metocean and seismic loads, and foundations.

This presentation outlines the status of this work along with other activities in external standards seeking to deliver one set of common requirements for offshore structures for oil, gas and, hopefully, some offshore renewables.
