Programs

IAGC Programs increase efficiencies, reduce waste and provide consistent industry-wide standards and best practices which improve performance while decreasing costs of permitting and compliance. 

The U.S. Gulf of Mexico Proactive Regulatory and Observational Program (GOM-PROP) provides regulatory support for all companies with exploration and/or production activities in the GOM, with particular focus on the needs of the members of the IAGC, the American Petroleum Institute (API), the Offshore Operators Committee (OOC), and the National Offshore Industry Association (NOIA) as the leading trade associations for companies with operations in the region. 

The Program creates and maintains a long-term, self-sustaining framework to ensure regulatory stability in the GOM, based on industry-collected observer data and the best available science, maximizing environmental benefit while minimizing industry burden of compliance so operations can be conducted in a safe and commercially viable manner. Participation in the program is voluntary with an annual subscription fee and is open to members of the associations and non-members. LEARN MORE
