Energy management through a well-structured 'energy management system' (EnMS) ensures that energy issues are properly taken into consideration in all aspects of the industry's activities.01.
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
This document describes 'good practices' and strategies that can be used in petroleum refineries to manage emissions of air pollutants, and includes a special section on how to identify odour sources. Many of the techniques may also be applicable to those chemical plants and petroleum distribution facilities having similar equipment and operations.
A fact sheet from a series developed by Ipieca and OGP to demonstrate the oil and gas industry's present and future contribution to sustainable development. Prepared in advance of the 2012 United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development (Rio+20).
A fact sheet from a series developed by Ipieca and OGP to demonstrate the oil and gas industry's present and future contribution to sustainable development. Prepared in advance of the 2012 United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development (Rio+20). The issues that dominate the sustainable development agenda - climate change, biodiversity impacts and access to energy - are too big for individual companies to tackle alone.

"Greenhouse gas emissions reporting: Perspectives on voluntary and regulatory regimes" provides a summary of the themes heard at the 2011 Ipieca workshop. It is aimed at everyone who has an interest in greenhouse gas reporting and the requirements it places on companies.
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
Promotion and certification of sustainable biofuels is complex and requires a well coordinated, multi-faceted and credible approach, and includes compliance with government mandates, international standards and certification programmes, which will be instrumental in promoting the responsible production of sustainable biofuels. This guide provides an introduction to biofuels Chain of Custody (CoC) systems as well as providing information on the different types of CoC systems in use.
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.Oil and natural gas industry guidelines for greenhouse gas reduction projectsCarbon capture and geological storage emission reduction project family
This document is the second of five greenhouse gas reduction 'project families' in an ongoing process of developing guidelines for project activities of interest to the oil and gas industry. Guidelines are provided for carbon dioxide capture and geological storage as an emission reduction option. The focus is on specific technical considerations and aspects rather than policy considerations.
The purpose of this document is to develop a voluntary framework for assessing GHG emission reductions associated with specific types of oil and natural gas projects, including references to relevant methodologies or guidance.
This document discusses the various aspects of emissions from shipping activities, such as current and proposed legislation, types and sources of emissions, as well as abatement strategies and their consequences, and stakeholders and their respective views.
Sulphur is naturally present in crude oil, and must be removed to create lower sulphur fuels. The removal processes present large technological and resource challenges.
International cooperation will be critical if society is to efficiently manage the risks posed by global climate change. This workshop considered the future of international policy architectures to manage climate change risk.
This publication communicates how the oil and gas industry is using partnerships to respond to challenges of meeting global energy demand and to contribute to sustainable development. The publication explores the partnering process through challenges and lessons learned identified by Ipieca members and their partners in the forty case studies featured.
The goal of this workshop was to advance understanding of the role of CO2 capture and geological storage, and strategies to improve its performance and prospects. This booklet summarizes the discussions and presentations made at the workshop.
This document provides background, starting-point references and resources to help regulators, engineers, refiners and marketers plan and execute the phase out of leaded gasoline. It features extracts from documents written by Ipieca members
