Efficiency in water use. Guidance document for the upstream onshore oil and gas industry.

October 2014

The guidance presents a systematic process for the onshore oil and gas industry to identify and assess potential measures to improve water efficiency via incorporating the principles of water stewardship, integrating water resource management and risk assessment throughout the life of an operation. This guidance is applicable to both new and existing operations and uses case studies to provide practical examples. The document forms an integral part of IPIECA’s Water Management Framework and complements the Identifying and assessing water sources document which was launched earlier in 2014.
