UFIP - French Association of Petroleum Industry


Last update:

UFIP (L’Union Française des Industries Pétrolières), the French Association of Petroleum Industry is an industry association for companies operating in France in one of the oil and gas industry's three major segments: oil and gas exploration & production, refining and logistics/distribution.

From well to pump, UFIP represents and expresses the business and professional viewpoints of its thirty+ member companies.

As the voice of the oil and gas industry, UFIP is consulted by the French government and public authorities about proposed legislation and regulations governing the industry. It advocates its point of view and recommends any changes and amendments to such texts that it deems advisable.

As the voice of the oil and gas industry, UFIP helps MPs and senators to make informed decisions about proposed
legislation and issues in this area by sharing its industry expertise. It also provides technical and economic information and regularly participates in committee hearings and parliamentary working groups.

UFIP leads negotiations with oil and gas industry unions on amendments to collective agreements, industry wage rounds and other agreements, especially those covering workplace safety, health and training.

As a go-to resource for the media, UFIP provides updated information on product prices, consumption and other issues and responds to journalists’ questions and requests for comments about oil and gas news.

On its website, visitors may download information packets and position briefs (in French) on oil and gas taxation, biofuels, climate change, source rock hydrocarbons and other issues.
