    OGP-IPIECA Good practice guidelines for the development of shale oil and gas

    December 2013

    Many members of both OGP and IPIECA have their own guidelines for oil and gas developments. These OGP-IPIECA Good practice guidelines for the development of shale oil and gas are intended to complement these established practices. This document also provides a general, global framework of principles for operations under which more detailed standards and/or practices may be developed to meet regional and local circumstances. For the majority of issues, good practices for shale oil and gas will be identical to those for ‘conventional’ operations.

    Integrating human rights into environmental, social and health impact assessments. A practical guide for the oil and gas industry.

    December 2013

    This Guide describes how human rights can be integrated into environmental, social and health impact assessments (ESHIAs), which the oil and gas industry routinely uses to evaluate projects and activities. It provides an introduction to human rights and their relevance to the activities of the oil and gas industry, and briefly describes why it is important for the oil and gas industry to consider the impact that its projects and activities have on human rights. It is the product of collaboration between impact assessment practitioners from IPIECA members and human rights practitioners from the Danish Institute for Human Rights (DIHR).

    A-Z of Biodiversity Terms

    October 2013

    This product has been developed in partnership with UNEP-World Conservation Monitoring Centre (WCMC) and provides short definitions of over 200 commonly-used biodiversity terms and acronyms. The glossary was developed to support greater consistency in the use of terms and definitions related to biodiversity. The definitions have been sourced from scientific literature, glossaries from global specialist organisations and international agreements. The definitions have a level of international acceptance and, in the case of conventions, have often gone through extensive negotiation phases between government parties to reach consensus. The glossary aims to provide clarity for practitioners implementing biodiversity management, particularly those doing so in the context of global conventions, international standards, regulations, policies and legislation.

    Energy and greenhouse gas efficiency compendium

    October 2013

    This online database provides an introduction to energy efficiency measures for oil and gas facilities, and aims to raise awareness and uptake of such technologies and practices across the industry.  The examples are based largely on existing documentation, and accompanying case studies are provided where possible. Whilst there are existing sources of information on upstream and downstream energy efficiency and GHG emissions reductions for the industry, these are not always easy to locate or freely available. This database seeks to resolve that by providing a single central resource. Visit the Energy and greenhouse gas efficiency compendium online.

    Cross Sector Biodiversity Initiative (CSBI) Charter

    August 2013

    IPIECA is partnering with ICMM, the international Council on Mining & Metals and The Equator Principle Association in a Cross-Sector Biodiversity Initiative (CSBI). This forum is enabling cross-industry learning on the use of the biodiversity mitigation hierarchy, and the application of biodiversity offsets. The CSBI has launched a Charter that sets out an agreement between the three associations to provide leadership in developing and sharing good practice related to biodiversity and ecosystem services in the extractive industry. The CSBI supports the associations’ broader goals of applying innovation and transparency through the mitigation hierarchy with respect to biodiversity and ecosystem services throughout members’ project activities.
