This document addresses Finding 9 of the OGP Global Industry Response Group (GIRG) report which recommended that industry conduct an assessment of potential exposure based on current Tier 2, Tier 3 and commercial response bases to help inform the potential location of any additional resources required.
A technical support document to accompany the Ipieca-IOGP guidance on wildlife response preparedness
A technical support document to accompany the Ipieca-IOGP guidance on net environmental benefit analysis (NEBA)Capabilities and uses of sensor and video - equipped waterborne surveillance-ROVs for subsea detection and tracking of oil spills.
This report provides a summary and analysis of the current ROV fleet...
This awareness briefing provides an overview of water management in the onshore development and production of oil and gas from shale.An assessment of surface surveillance capabilities for oil spill response using airborne remote sensing
This report focuses on identifying capabilities and gaps associated with surveillance monitoring from aircraft, covering both surveillance platforms and sensors. The report then conducts an assessment of the capabilities of the technology for OSR and provides findings for enhanced use of the technology by the industry.An assessment of surface surveillance capabilities for oil spill response using satellite remote sensing
This report provides an assessment of satellite surveillance for oil spill response and focuses on identifying capabilities and gaps associated with surveillance monitoring from satellites. The report focuses on the surveillance capabilities of satellites, considering both the intrinsic capabilities and the practical and operational capabilities of sensorsCapabilities and uses of sensor-equipped ocean vehicles for subsea and surface detection and tracking of oil spills
This report evaluates a range of oil detection sensors and oceanographic vehicles and their overall compatibility for detecting and tracking oil in water. Oil detection sensors include in situ contact sensors that utilize either direct or indirect sensing methods and surface remote sensors that utilize either passive or active sensing methods. Oceanographic vehicles include autonomous underwater vehicles (AUVs), autonomous surface vehicles (ASVs), and manned surface vessels.
This product has been developed in partnership with UNEP-World Conservation Monitoring Centre (WCMC) and provides short definitions of over 200 commonly-used biodiversity terms and acronyms. The glossary was developed to support greater consistency in the use of terms and definitions related to biodiversity. The definitions have been
Ipieca is partnering with ICMM, the international Council on Mining & Metals and The Equator Principle Association in a Cross-Sector Biodiversity Initiative (CSBI). This forum is enabling cross-industry learning on the use of the biodiversity mitigation hierarchy, and the application of biodiversity offsets.
As responses to climate change impacts extend beyond greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions mitigation, governments and companies increasingly recognize the need to integrate adaptation planning and implementation into balanced risk management strategies
This product highlights the interface between the management of biodiversity and ecosystem services (BES) and water issues throughout upstream onshore oil and gas operations, and outlines the key management steps for identifying and assessing both dependencies and potential impacts of operations on BES, and water risks
Natural gas is experiencing a period of strong growth. Significantly increased resource estimates, and improvements in production and transport technologies have led to an expanding role in energy supply
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.
In April 2003, Ipieca hosted an international stakeholder dialogue, facilitated by Business for Social Responsibility. This two-day dialogue brought together an equal number of industry representatives and stakeholders ranging from non-governmental organizations
