Benefits

Member benefits:

  • Increasing reliability – standardisation of well equipment is critical for ensuring production reliability through improvement of testing and design of equipment and processes to minimise exposure and risk while assisting in optimising well performance
  • Cutting costs – standardisation of testing procedures and methodologies ensures that service companies, vendors and research institutes don’t waste time and money re-testing equipment to match varying requirements
  • Fast-tracked standard development – A significantly shorter timeline for document development (it takes OTM on average 2.5-3 years to develop an RP and members of our other JIPs advised that it can take much longer through international standards bodies)
  • Fast-tracked API certification – on average it takes just two years to API certify an AWES recommended practice
  • Collaboration and networking – opportunities to collaborate on the development of standards that are important for your business without having to wait for API/other certification bodies to decide whether to develop a standard or not
  • Managed discussion environment – opportunities to have constructive discussions in a relaxed environment managed by a qualified project manager
  • Tangible deliverables against set deadlines – schedules in place for each work group and the JIP itself to ensure that all documents are published within 2-2.5 years
