Worldwide Support For JODI

  1. Concluding Statement by Host Country Russian Federation and Co-hosting Countries the Republic of Iraq, 14th International Energy Forum, 15-16 May 2014, Moscow Russia
    Supporting on-going efforts by the JODI Partners to improve energy data transparency is fundamental in the promotion of market stability. The contributions of JODI-Oil and JODI-Gas in this regard can be strengthened through greater visibility and enhanced access of JODI data, including the preliminary release of information on stocks and greater transparency regarding policy plans. Expansion of the JODI database to cover other energy sources is a welcome objective that requires further exploration to ensure that adequate funding and processes are in place and that JODI-Oil and JODI-Gas continue to improve, and eventually lead to an inclusive JODI-Energy data collaboration.

    The realisation of the negative impact of the unusually high volatile oil prices on economies of nations around the globe gave birth to the formation of JODI. This point is very important for us non-producing countries, but especially for Africa. Chief among the reasons for such volatile oil prices was deemed to be the lack of transparent and reliable oil statistics.
  32. H.E. Francois Loos, Minister Delegate for Industry, France, IEF Newsletter, Issue 6, May 2006
    The International Energy Forum is a new meeting place that aims to find a common approach to global energy challenges. It enhances energy security worldwide by recognizing the interdependence of all member countries regardless of their energy perspective, and promotes transparency and mutual understanding between participating members. In this sense, the JODI initiative developed by the IEF that leads us all to communicate on our current use of energy is an essential element to understand the current trends of energy market worldwide and to limit speculations.
  33. H.E. Ali I. Al-Naimi, Minister of Petroleum and Mineral Resources, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, IEF Newsletter, Issue 5, January 2006
    The Joint Oil Data initiative ... enjoys a particular importance since it helps countries to better plan for the future. It also contributes to stabilizing the international market, because the absence of accurate and clear data is one of the most important problems that face the international market and industry, especially in significant issues such as supply and demand, production, reserves, etc. I do not exaggerate when I say that shortage in accurate oil information is one of the reasons for the crises that the international market witness nowadays.
