2023 Exploration and Production Standards Conference on Oilfield Equipment and Materials

Hyatt Regency Orlando, Orlando, Florida


View Preliminary Program 


The Exploration and Production Standards Conference on Oilfield Equipment and Materials will be held Monday, June 12 – Friday, June 16, 2023, in Orlando, Florida. It will be open to industry professionals who wish to participate.

Reason For Attending

Participation in the Exploration & Production Standards Conference is an invaluable opportunity to be a part of how the U.S. petroleum industry develops and maintains state-of-the-art standards.

The development of consensus standards is one of API’s oldest and most successful programs. It covers over 700 standards for all segments of the oil and natural gas industry. The breadth of this vital program is an important indication of the varied industry contacts that attendees can make during the sessions and networking opportunities.

The Committee on Standardization of Oilfield Equipment and Materials, CSOEM, is responsible for approximately 300 standards including many that form the basis of the API Monogram Program.

In accordance with our ANSI-approved Procedures for Standards Development, API’s standards development process:

Participation in API standards activities is open to all parties (persons and organizations) that have a direct and material interest in the subject of a standard.

API seeks broad input to its standardization activities including the participation of all parties representing interest categories appropriate to the nature of the standard and allows for open attendance at standards meetings.

API develops industry standards based on consensus. Consensus is established when substantial agreement has been reached by directly and materially interested parties that are voting members of the committee/consensus body.

Benefits Of Participation

  • Gain access to technical committee meetings covering API upstream standards and best practices used throughout the industry to promote safe, sustainable, and environmentally sound operations.
  • Learn about the latest API sponsored research and development including future R&D efforts that may benefit your business in the long run.
  • Network with colleagues and establish new business connections.
  • Connect with exhibitors to learn about products, services, and technologies that may be important to your company.
  • Qualify for the chance to win one of two complimentary registrations for a future Exploration & Production Standards Conference during the two networking breaks on Monday and Tuesday afternoons.
  • Earn Professional Development Hours (PDH) to maintain professional certifications.

Avoid Housing Scams

Note: API has not contracted with any third party for hotel arrangements and will not call or email you directly to make housing arrangements on your behalf.

Should you receive a call or email from a third-party provider, please collect as much information as you can and let us know immediately. “Room Poachers” have been known to act as representatives of API, or authorized providers of API, to offer room discounts or alternative accommodations to our attendees – often to the attendee’s detriment. These companies are not affiliated with API, and reservations made through these companies for our meeting cannot be guaranteed.

How It Works

This deceptive practice (called “room poaching”) is carried out by third‐party companies that act as travel agencies, wholesalers, or even API to solicit registrants for room reservations. The poacher might inform registrants that the hotel room block is “sold out,” and that if you do not book with them immediately, you may not get a room. Room poachers make it more difficult for us to meet our room block commitments, and expose us to penalties and increased room rates for our events. Room poachers often don’t deliver on promises to customers. When customers arrive, reservations are non‐existent or the hotels are not conveniently located. Sometimes the rooms have been cancelled and hefty cancellation fees have been placed on the customer’s credit card.

Don’t Be Deceived

If you are contacted by anyone asking if you need a room for the API Conference, please get as much information as you can (their name, company name, phone number, etc.) and pass it along to [email protected]. Always make your room reservation directly with the information provided by API or a trusted source.

API will use all legal means possible to prevent these groups from operating.

Please contact [email protected] with any questions.
