Widespread deployment of carbon capture and storage (CCS) requires addressing remaining knowledge gaps and implementation barriers. Resolving these involves a portfolio of activities including research and development, demonstration projects, and developing management practices, public acceptance and regulatory frameworks. This report provides a summary of the workshop of the same name, convened in September 2011 by IPIECA. This work is aimed at all members and stakeholders who have an interest in this essential mitigation technology, and the remaining barriers it faces.
Members of the OGP-IPIECA Health Committee piloted a set of eight leading indicators of health performance within their companies during September 2008, 2009 and 2010. Two tools were used: 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. The health indicators report illustrates the final versions of both tools, actual anonymous results for 2011, trends over time and the potential benefits to health management in the industry. The report has been produced as part of the OGP Safety Data Sub-Committee annual report.
This case study outlines how Angola LNG is using Chevron’s Operational Excellence Process for Environmental, Social and Health Impact Assessment (ESHIA) to manage the potential environmental impacts of a proposed Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) facility on the coast of Angola. Through a partnership with the Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS), Angola LNG are working to address identified issues and to develop programmes to protect marine turtles and marine mammals through cooperative science, management, training and education.
This case study details a quarantine management programme set up by Chevron Australia on Barrow Island, where the largest onshore oilfield in Australia has been situated for more than 45 years. Despite the significant activity, the island’s unique biodiversity remains intact and the ecosystem remains essentially free of exotic plants and animals. This is not due to luck but to a rigorous Quarantine Management System (QMS) – a scalable system that enables fit-for-purpose management seamlessly integrated with existing environmental management systems and corporate management systems.
Esso Highlands Limited (EHL), a subsidiary of Exxon Mobil Corporation, has developed a Biodiversity Strategy for its Papua New Guinea Liquefied Natural Gas Project (PNG LNG). The project includes gas production and processing facilities, liquefaction and storage facilities, and more than 450 miles of related pipelines. This case study summarises how PNG LNG has and will continue to manage terrestrial biodiversity in its Upstream Project Area.
This case study outlines a successful western gray whale research and monitoring programme, co-sponsored by Exxon Neftegas Limited (ENL), a subsidiary of Exxon Mobil Corporation. As part of this effort, a satellite-tagging program was put into place in 2010 to better understand the winter range of the species after their summer and fall feeding period offshore Sakhalin Island, Russia. A tagged whale was followed by satellite for more than four months, giving scientists unique data and insight into the western gray whales’ winter journeys.
Peru LNG operations consist of a 408km natural gas transportation pipeline that traverses many diverse landscapes and ecosystems. This case study explains how a Biodiversity Action Plan (BAP) was developed in order to protect biodiversity during the construction and operation of the pipeline. The BAP was developed utilising a phased approach that started in the early planning stages and will continue through assessment, construction, operations, and closure.
This case study details the work of Maersk Oil Qatar to monitor and protect marine ecology at the Al Shaheen oil field, which with a daily production of around 300,000 barrels per day is the largest offshore oil field in Qatar. Maersk Oil has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the Ministry of Environment in Qatar that will act as an umbrella agreement for conducting biodiversity studies in Qatari waters and promote conservation of marine ecology.
