Registry Use in the Upstream Oil and Gas Industry
In 2013, CAGC put forth a New Issue Proposal on the use of registries. Registries are used by clients as part of their contractor management program to pre-qualify service providers. The advent of the use of registries by clients is relatively a new development in contractor management within the upstream oil and gas industry. Clients require their service providers to have accounts with their registry providers and submit their Health and Safety Programs to the registry provider to pre-qualify for work. The use of registries for contractor management results in costs and efforts for both the client and the contractor. In response, a survey was proposed to better understand the challenges.
