                               Workshop overview
Objectives
This workshop is designed to provide professionals of oil & gas companies, national standards bodies,
service providers, the supply industry and rule-making authorities in Thailand and South East Asia with
the opportunity to broaden their understanding of international standardisation activities for this globally
important industry sector.
The workshop will review and discuss the international and national standardisation work, the role of the
authorities and standardisation bodies in the ongoing standardisation and the experiences within other
relevant countries and regions of adopting such standards for the oil & gas sector, including the challenges
facing harmonisation of company and local standards with International Standards.


Key Benefits
    •	 Provide an overview of the international standardisation process with particular focus on the
       efforts, work and products arising out of ISO Technical Committee 67 that focus on standards for
       “Materials, equipment and offshore structures for the petroleum, petrochemical and natural gas
       industries”, used both upstream and downstream.
    •	 Provide an up to date overview on the importance and benefits of standardisation in oil & gas
       industry and explore the activities and experiences of international, regional, national and
       company standardisation in this field and how Thailand can participate and influence these
       standards.
    •	 Develop a clear picture on the benefits of adoption of International Standards and identify the
       difficulties facing international standardisation and suggest effective solutions in this regard.
    •	 Identify and define the Thai oil & gas sector standardisation needs in view of a growing oil & gas
       industry and the ongoing globalisation efforts.
