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.

The uncertainties inherent in the data used for emission inventories help inform and improve understanding for the data's use. This is receiving increased attention in order to understand determinations of GHG emissions and emission reductions. This document provides background information, and details, on measurement uncertainty and statistical calculation methods that improve the quality of GHG emission estimations for the oil and gas industry. It is a collaborative effort between Ipieca, the American Petroleum Institute (API) and CONCAWE.
