    Vector-borne disease management programmes

    March 2013

    This guide is aimed at health, safety and environment practitioners, as well as medical personnel and health risks managers working for the oil and gas industry. It is especially relevant for managers and supervisors located in, or responsible for, personnel working in areas where vector-borne diseases (VBDs) are endemic. It outlines the importance of vector-borne diseases, including malaria, and their potential impact on operations, and provides guidance on the design of appropriate vector-borne disease management programmes (VBDMPs).

    Performance indicators for fatigue risk management systems

    March 2013

    This IPIECA-OGP Health Committee publication provides an approach to developing performance indicators for a fatigue risk management system (FRMS). Historically, the risk associated with fatigue was largely managed by limiting the number of hours worked. However, there is increasing understanding that hours-of-service limits by themselves may not achieve the objective of managing risk from fatigue. This, together with the restrictive impact on operations, has led industry and regulators to move away from using rules based solely on hours of work, and instead adopt a more comprehensive style of fatigue risk management using fatigue risk management systems (FRMS). This document contains proposals for possible performance indicators that could be used to monitor the effectiveness of an FRMS.

    Saving energy in the oil and gas industry (2013)

    February 2013

    This informative document was developed primarily for external stakeholders. It outlines why it is important for the oil and gas industry to save energy and describes key actions being taken, including: improving efficiency of operations along the supply chain and eliminating unnecessary waste; examples of energy management systems; the use of benchmarking tools; management practices; communication and awareness; reductions in flaring and venting, and energy improvement projects and new technologies.

    Collaborating to improve reforestation and reclamation of boreal forests: OSLI case study

    February 2013

    This case study is about the Oil Sands Leadership Initiative (OSLI), a collaboration of oil sands developers in Canada who undertook to demonstrate enhanced environmental performance, using on-the-ground initiatives to reduce impacts on biodiversity in the boreal forests of the oil sands region.  Specifically, the OSLI began an initiative addressing disturbed sites, with the objective of accelerating reforestation; this has become known as the Faster Forests program.

    Oil spill responder health and safety

    February 2013

    When an oil spill occurs, the issue of Health and Safety is of critical concern, and should form the cornerstone of all oil spill preparatory measures. This task is made especially difficult during a spill, because of the vast array of tasks - each with their own Health and Safety issues, and often in conflict with each other - that need to be analysed and prioritized. This document provides a broad based guide which focuses on the practical and technical considerations during oil spill planning and response operations, including: management of health and safety, risk assessment, physical and chemical safety issues during response operations, and volunteer management.

    Guidelines for implementing ISO 50001 energy management systems in the oil and gas industry

    January 2013

    Energy management through a well-structured ‘energy management system’ (EnMS) ensures that energy issues are properly taken into consideration in all aspects of the industry’s activities. In July 2011, the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) released the ISO 50001 standard, Energy management systems— Requirements with guidance for use, which provides the essential framework and guidelines for establishing and operating an energy management system in general terms. Beyond the generic guidelines and recommendations of the ISO standard, this document provides further guidance from a more specific, oil and gas industry perspective, and includes examples and case studies directly relevant to oil and gas organizations and operations. It should be read in conjunction with ISO 50001.

    Reducing risks to western gray whales: Sakhalin Energy case study

    December 2012

    This case study explains how Sakhalin Energy developed a comprehensive monitoring and mitigation programme in order to reduce risks that offshore oil and gas development could pose to western gray whales. Implementing the programme has increased global understanding of these endangered mammals and aided scientists in their efforts to identify and develop new measures to protect gray whales from impacts related to the energy industry.
