PTIT Standing Committee is appointed by the Council of Trustees to assist and support the Institute on specific public policies, regulatory issues, and other related activities. Fundamental missions of the three groups of Standing Committee – the Exploration and Production Standing Committee (E&P STC), the Refining and Petrochemical Industry Standing Committee (R&P STC), and the Logistics and Marketing Standing Committee (L&M STC) – are to provide support for members in each industrial group to work collaboratively on issues of common interests and share best practices among them.

Various task forces, made up of delegates from the industry, are set up to assist each Standing Committee in working proactively with relevant agencies, particularly those in the government sector, to formulate necessary laws and regulations to ensure sustainability and highest benefit of both the industry and the country as a whole. These task forces, in doing their jobs, always pay attention to health, safety, and the environment in parallel with industrial operations.



Each Standing Committee is chaired by a PTIT Trustee for neutrality and impartiality. A chairmanship term is two years starting from January 1st of the year. In view of a smooth transfer and continuity of the Standing Committee's activities, a Vice Chairman shall be appointed by the Council of Trustees at the start of the second year of a Chairman's term and he will automatically become a Chairman at the end of the Chairman's 2-year term. In addition, there shall be a rotation/change of companies to chair various Standing Committees every two years.
