An Update on the Joint Organisation Data Initiative

1 Oct 2013

The International Energy Forum (IEF) in consultation with its JODI Partners, prepared this update on the Joint Organisations Data Initiative (JODI) in response to the request set forth in Section 91 of the September 2013 G20 Leaders’ Declaration:

"To promote market transparency and efficiency, we commit to strengthen Joint Organisations Data Initiative (JODI-Oil) by ensuring greater visibility, more complete and comprehensive data, enhanced access and improved availability, and by maintaining support for capacity building. We look forward to the launch of JODI-Gas at the earliest date possible. We note the second report prepared by the International Energy Agency (IEA), the International Energy Forum (IEF) and the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) in May 2013 on practical steps to increase transparency in international gas and coal markets. We ask the IEF to come back with a report on progress in these areas before the next G20 Ministers of Finance and Central Bank Governors meeting in October."
