    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.

    Prevention of heart attacks and other cardiovascular diseases. A guide for managers, employees and company health professionals

    September 2013

    Cardiovascular diseases (CVDs), i.e. heart attacks and strokes, are the main causes of death within the oil and gas industry. This guidance document has been designed for doctors, medical professionals, employees and line managers, and outlines a number of strategies and improvements that the oil and gas industry can implement to reduce the number of CVD-related deaths in the years to come.

    The IPIECA water management framework

    September 2013

    IPIECA’s framework for water management in onshore oil and gas activities has been developed to help the oil and gas sector respond to broader global concerns about water availability and quality to enhance the industry’s efforts to achieve sustainable water management. The framework is a cyclical process of planning, implementation, evaluation and review. It can be implemented at both corporate and operational level, over the different phases through the life of oil and gas operations, from planning to decommissioning.

    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.

    Addressing adaptation in the oil and gas industry

    July 2013

    As responses to climate change impacts extend beyond greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions mitigation, governments and companies increasingly recognize the need to integrate adaptation planning and implementation into balanced risk management strategies. In this context, IPIECA is pleased to announce the release of its awareness briefing Addressing adaptation in the oil and gas industry. The briefing is intended for anyone with an interest in the role of adaptation planning. It examines oil and gas industry awareness of climate change-related risks, and identifies appropriate responses and ways in which these responses are being integrated into broad risk management frameworks. Structured to provide an overview of the adaptation planning process, the document includes: examples of climate risks identified by the oil and gas industry; an outline of risk evaluation processes related to specific potential impacts, and in-use examples of risk adaptation and management.

    Health and safety performance indicators - 2012 data

    June 2013

    In 2007 the OGP-IPIECA Health Committee published the ‘Health Performance Indicators – a guide for the oil and gas industry’ report. The principles described in that report were used to develop two tools: the first indicated the extent of management of the 8 areas across each participating company globally; the second allowed for in-depth analysis at site and corporate level. Results provided were first published in October 2012 presenting data from 2008-2011. During 2012, the OGP-IPIECA Health Committee collected the data and responses from 16 participating companies and eventually developed the 2012 Health Performance Indicators report. This report provides a good indication of the health management performance for each company and helps to identify weak areas and areas for improvement.

    Making the connection: oil and gas management of natural resources (interactive PDF)

    May 2013

    This product highlights the interface between the management of biodiversity and ecosystem services (BES) and water issues throughout upstream onshore oil and gas operations, and outlines the key management steps for identifying and assessing both dependencies and potential impacts of operations on BES, and water risks. HSE professionals, managers and practitioners can click through each stage of the management cycle to understand the IPIECA approach whilst also discovering the IPIECA tools and products that are available to help manage BES and water issues effectively.

    Marine Geospatial Bibliography

    May 2013

    The MGB is a free online tool developed to centralise reports, papers and environmental research on oil and gas activities in marine environments. The MGB makes such information easy to find, search and summarise, and each resource is geospatially referenced. IPIECA invites you to search for information through the map or search fields, or to help us extend our bibliography by submitting a resource. The IPIECA Marine Geospatial Bibliography (MGB) is available at: mgb.ipieca.org

    The expanding role of natural gas. Comparing life-cycle greenhouse gas emissions

    May 2013

    Natural gas is experiencing a period of strong growth. Significantly increased resource estimates, and improvements in production and transport technologies have led to an expanding role in energy supply, particularly in important demand sectors such as electricity generation. This briefing explores the resource in a climate change context, the revised base estimates, its greenhouse gas (GHG) footprint compared to other energy sources, and projected demands from different sectors.
