Since 1997, the IFIA Petroleum Committee has published bulletins on issues of importance to the industry. These bulletins typically address current technical issues that directly impact the ongoing business operations of IFIA Petroleum Committee member companies or disseminate IFIA positions on non-technical matters affecting operations. Bulletins are published on an as-needed basis and are listed below in PDF format. Due to varying industry practices and local regulations bulletins may not be applicable to all regions and in these cases this is made clear in the title. The contents of these bulletins do not detract from, or take precedence over, any legal or contractual duties undertaken by the IFIA member company, and IFIA accepts no responsibility for acts or omissions of members or others who may make use of them.
