Quality Control in Oil & Gas

Quality Control in Oil & Gas

The Oil & Gas sector deals with hazardous fluids and gases across different processes. In this regard, the safety of personnel, the protection of the environment and the sustenance of revenue streams requires considerable levels of operational integrity.

The success of an organization is based on its operational efficiency, customer service standards and quality of products delivered. This in turn assists in creating a positive brand image.

Hence, it is mandatory for the industry to have an efficient quality management system. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) promotes the sectors conformance to ISO 14000 environmental management standards (EMS) that enables organizations to enhance their environmental management by preventing pollution.

Again, the manufacturers of Oil & Gas equipments and service contractors conform to ISO 9000 quality standards.

The key measure of the Oil & Gas sectors performance is based on its ability to deliver safe, efficient and top notch products and services. However, the organizations within the sector must resolve several quality related issues to accomplish the objectives.

Cost of Operations

Firms having several facilities and deploying personnel across many locations may find it economical to maintain distinct quality systems, but the lack of efficiency in hybrid systems can, in the long run, cost in terms of man-hours.


It would be extremely difficult to retrieve documentation, especially during ISO and customer audits.

Change Management

The process of managing change could be long and inconvenient while any change control process that is not in sync with other quality processes (CAPA, customer complaint, and training) could have an impact on change turnaround.
