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).Life-cycle greenhouse gas emissions of transportation fuels: issues and implications for unconventional fuel sources
The effectiveness and efficiency of regulatory and other policy approaches intended to reduce the greenhouse gas emissions from transportation fuels can hinge on the fuel life-cycle analysis (LCA). This report provides a summary of the workshop of the same name, convened in September 2010
Recognizing the need to update the original version of the Guidelines to reflect changing practices, Ipieca and API jointly initiated the development of this second edition of the Guidelines to continue to promote credible
The oil and gas industry both depends and impacts upon biodiversity and ecosystem services (BES). The aim of this guide is threefold. Firstly, it explains the relationship between biodiversity, ecosystem services and the oil and gas industry.
The oil and gas industry both depends and impacts upon biodiversity and ecosystem services (BES). These checklists cover the five stages of the oil and gas life cycle for six generic habitat types, onshore and offshore.
This manual describes typical 'best practices' and strategies used in petroleum refineries to manage water, including ways to reduce water usage. Improved water management in a petroleum refinery can potentially reduce the volume and cost of raw water used in refinery operations. Furthermore, improved water management may result in reductions in wastewater flow or contaminant load or both. Lower flow and contaminant load may result in lower wastewater treatment operating and maintenance costs. Optimized water management may also reduce the mass of contaminants in the treated effluent, thus improving the quality of a wastewater discharge and ultimately the environmental impact of a refinery's discharge.
