Why does the Oil and Gas industry need more than ISO 9001?

- Global industry that operates worldwide (range of skills, cultures, exposure to international markets)
- Failure of goods or services can have severe consequences
- Consistently verifiable assurance is required
- Owners and operators need to manage the risks arising from using materials and equipment
The petroleum, petrochemical and natural gas industries are by their very natures risky and dangerous with a potential for damage to the environment and risk to human health and safety. With today’s technical challenges of deeper wells, higher pressures, deeper subsea completions, greater transportation challenges, and larger refining capacities worldwide, the industry will face increasing challenges in its efforts to procure safe and reliable products and services.
