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

June 2016

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.
