API Commitment to Excellence in Hydraulic Fracturing Workshop

This event is closed. If you have any questions, please contact the planner directly.

API is the worldwide leading standards setting body for the oil and natural gas industry. Accredited by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI), API has issued nearly 700 consensus standards governing all segments of the oil and gas industry. These include standards, guidelines, and recommended practices regarding safety, equipment, operations, effective water management, spill prevention and environmental protection. Many API standards and practices are incorporated into both federal and state oil and natural gas regulations and they are the most widely cited petroleum industry standards by international regulators.

In our on-going effort toward continued improvement of oil and natural gas operations, in May of 2011, API completed a series of industry guidance documents, of which portions were pertinent to hydraulic fracturing. This led to a two-day workshop titled Commitment to Excellence in Hydraulic Fracturing in Pittsburgh, PA in October of 2011 to formally discuss the content of the HF series documents. The initial meeting was followed 14 additional workshops across the country from January – May 2012 educating the industry, the public, the media, and federal and state legislators and regulators about the API’s standard setting process and the HF series.

In 2013, the HF series was revised and ANSI certified, resulting in three new API Recommended Practices. A similar series of outreach workshops titled Continuing the Commitment to Excellence is being scheduled for 2016 and 2017. Our kick-off session is being held in The Woodlands on October 26, 2016 and we are inviting you to join the discussion! The workshop is limited to 100 participants.
