Guidelines for implementing ISO 50001 energy management systems in the oil and gas industry

January 2013

Energy management through a well-structured ‘energy management system’ (EnMS) ensures that energy issues are properly taken into consideration in all aspects of the industry’s activities. In July 2011, the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) released the ISO 50001 standard, Energy management systems— Requirements with guidance for use, which provides the essential framework and guidelines for establishing and operating an energy management system in general terms. Beyond the generic guidelines and recommendations of the ISO standard, this document provides further guidance from a more specific, oil and gas industry perspective, and includes examples and case studies directly relevant to oil and gas organizations and operations. It should be read in conjunction with ISO 50001.
