Best practice guidelines

OGUK and its members are dedicated to raising the professional standards of the industry through best practice guidelines. Member companies dedicate specialist resources and technical expertise to facilitate the development of guidelines that help the industry address issues including well operations, safe mooring of vessels, cargo handling, emergency response and decommissioning activities.

This important body of work demonstrates the industry’s ongoing commitment to work together to continually review and improve the performance of all aspects of offshore operations.

Our guidelines have been awarded the Institute of Materials, Minerals and Mining Medal of Excellence. Find out more.

Guidelines are free for members of OGUK and can be purchased by non-members.
