ConocoPhillips has selected EPIM JQS as prequalification system Like the other operators on the Norwegian shelf, the company has chosen International Oil and Gas Producers’ report IOGP 423 - HSE management guidelines for working together in a contract environment as the basis for suppliers’ HSE self-assessment in EPIM JQS.
Norwegian operating companies, suppliers and employee organizations have cooperated to develop a new NORSOK S-WA-006 for qualifying suppliers. A consensus-based process was used to develop these guidelines for adapting IOGP 423 to Norwegian conditions.
EPIM JQS was made available for use on 1 October, and operators’ use of Achilles JQS will end on 31 December 2018. Relevant users of EPIM JQS in ConocoPhillips can contact Kristin Tøkje and Monika Latacz-Okagu to obtain necessary access and guidance for the system.
