The IEF chaired an Inter Secretariat Meeting of JODI partner organisations including APECEurostatGECFIEAIEFOLADE and OPEC in London on 3-4 February 2016. 

The meeting, hosted by the British Government at the Headquarters of its Department for Energy and Climate Change (DECC) focussed on reviewing progress and action plans in regard to the following:

  • Participation Assessment of the JODI-Oil and JODI-Gas World Databases;
  • Proposals to enhance the visibility of JODI;
  • G20 ESWG feedback on JODI and data transparency;
  • Consultant’s draft report on assessment of coal data transparency;
  • Capacity Building: Past and Upcoming Workshops in 2016;
  • Preparations for the upcoming 15th IEF Ministerial meeting scheduled to be held in Algiers on 27-28 September 2016;
  • Update on new JODI Website and JODI Forum.

Bloomberg also participated in a special session of the meeting during which they delivered a presentation and exchanged views with partner organisations on their proposal to publish JODI data on their industry platforms and terminals. The JODI partners agreed to conduct a further review of the proposal before deciding on the path forward.

Partners also received a report from the consultant charged with carrying out a pre-assessment of the potential for improved coal data transparency. They will consider the findings of the report in more depth before determining next steps. They further agreed to launch a JODI-Gas Participation Assessment using the established methodologies and to publish the first assessment within 2016. Partners also decided to organise JODI training workshops targeting the Asian and CIS regions later this year.
