    Health leading performance indicators report - 2015 data

    May 2016

    In 2007, IPIECA and the joint Health Committee of the International Association of Oil & Gas Producers (IOGP), co-published Health Performance Indicators - A guide for the oil and gas industry. This report lead to the production of two health leading performance indicator tools. Participating companies perform a self-assessment of their performance in relation to standardized statements about the level of implementation of the company’s own health management systems. The tools were subsequently used to gauge health performance between more than 20 IPIECA and IOGP member companies – the results of which are published in this report (No. 2015h). The two tools (gap analysis tool and percentage tool) have been used to: assess health performance within individual companies; and compare performance between different parts of a company and between participating companies.

    Local Content: a guidance document for the oil and gas industry. (2nd edition)

    April 2016

    This document offers guidance on understanding and delivering local content in relation to oil and gas projects. It has two aims: to offer oil and gas companies practical advice on how they can realize the potential value of local content; and to offer all stakeholders suggestions on ways to help create shared value through local content development. The Guidance begins with identifying local content within the wider context of national, local and company expectations and obligations. It then explores the potential of local content to create shared value for stakeholders, outlining an approach that encourages producer countries, resource developers, their supply chain and other stakeholders to work collaboratively. The document also identifies an extensive range of related challenges and opportunities, closing with a focus on establishing organizations to deliver value from local content. The Annexes provide a wealth of tools and information to support local content activities, from analysis, planning and collaboration to implementation and evaluation. The Guidance is also accompanied by a case study appendix exploring a number of themes, including skills development programmes and local content performance management.

    A guide to shoreline clean-up techniques. Good practice guidelines for incident management and emergency response personnel.

    December 2015

    This document sets out the important factors to be considered when contemplating the clean-up of an oiled shoreline, including the steps to be taken in managing shoreline clean-up operations. The advantages and disadvantages of some of the most frequently used techniques are discussed, as well as identifying at what stage in the overall operation a particular technique is likely to be most useful. In addition, the document examines the interaction between stranded oil and different shoreline types, and suggests some possible approaches to addressing the challenges this interaction can present.

    IPIECA Climate Change Reporting Framework. A pilot guidance document for the oil and gas industry.

    December 2015

    In recent years, stakeholders have become increasingly interested in the oil and gas industry’s views on climate change-related risks and the actions the sector is taking to address them. Companies currently disclose information on these issues in a variety of ways, including voluntary communications, summary annual reports and sustainability reports. In addition, companies report information to other third parties in varying formats. IPIECA’s pilot Climate Change Reporting Framework is intended to provide voluntary guidance for oil and gas companies when developing climate-related corporate sustainability reports.

    At-sea containment and recovery. Good practice guidelines for incident management and emergency response personnel.

    December 2015

    At sea containment and recovery is the controlled encounter and collection of oil from the water’s surface. Equipment is used to corral and concentrate the spilled oil (using floating barriers or booms) on the sea surface into a suitable surface thickness, allowing for mechanical removal. This document explains how effective containment and recovery can reduce the impact to on-water sensitivities such as seabirds, fish and mammals; reduce the impact on shoreline sensitivities by removing floating oil at sea; reduce the complexity and duration of a shoreline response, and reduce the volume of waste generated by a response. The document explores the reasons why at-sea containment and recovery sometimes fails, and the circumstances under which it can and cannot be considered.

    Global Water Tool for Oil and Gas - Version II (2015)

    October 2015

    This customized version of the WBCSD Global Water Tool has been developed by IPIECA in collaboration with WBCSD and led by CH2M HILL. The updated, Version II tool provides enhanced functionality and new data sets enabling a thorough assessment of potential global water risks across a global portfolio of sites considering the entire oil and gas value chain. The tool will allow oil and gas companies to map their water use and assess risks for their overall global portfolio of sites considering each part of the oil and gas value chain. The tool will allow users to consider factors such as what percentage of its production volume is in water-scarce areas, how many refineries are in water-scarce areas and at greatest risks, as well as how many sites are in countries that lack access to improved water sanitation.
