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.
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.
This publication draws together key insights on designing and implementing community grievance mechanisms. The survey will inform a series of pilot projects sponsored by member companies to test different approaches to implementation on the ground.
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.
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 explains the ecosystem mapping project Repsol have undertaken at the Teak-Samaan-Poui (TSP) block located off the southeast coast of Trinidad. Through a partnership with a local university, Repsol are undertaking a series of surveys to map the physical and biological characteristics of the TSP Block. Thus far, the benthic fauna has been mapped, and surveys are ongoing to map the presence and behaviours of marine birds and mammals. These surveys are aimed at mapping the physical and biological characteristics of the marine environment of the TSP Block to be able to differentiate between natural variations and anthropogenic activities.
The Ecuadorian Amazon is one of the most sensitive natural environments where eni operates. Since 2000, eni’s subsidiary Agip Oil Ecuador (AOE) has been operating the Villano field in Block 10, located in an almost untouched area of forest. This case study explains the Villano Biodiversity (VBD) Project, which demonstrated that AOE’s operations are substantially neutral from an ecological point of view, and that the restoration of the impacts of oil activities is feasible, effective and relatively swift. This means that the operating model of avoid and minimise impacts adopted by AOE is effective in achieving No Net Loss of biodiversity.
This document introduces considerations and recommendations for oil and gas development in coastal environments. It highlights key issues for decision-makers and their advisors, project managers and HSE professionals in planning, designing, impact-assessing and managing oil and gas activities in these areas.
This publication draws on the experience and expertise of the industry, through IPIECA and OGP, and the World Bank-led Global Gas Flaring Reduction Public-Private partnership (GGFR). It is the product of a cooperative effort between the IPIECA GHG Emissions Task Force and GGFR to create a guidance document to support flare reduction efforts by petroleum producers and governments worldwide. The key to addressing gas flaring is the identification of project activities that can successfully bring the gas to more productive use, and the expansion of potential solutions from those attainable by individual oil field operators to solutions that fully employ the capabilities of operators and governments working together.
The purpose of this guide is to help managers and supervisors at all levels in the oil and gas industry to be aware of the threat of tuberculosis (TB), and to help them mitigate the impact of TB on their companies’ projects and operations.
