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.Greenhouse gas emissions reportingPerspectives on voluntary and regulatory reporting mechanisms, and emerging changes in practice
"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
A compare-and-contrast analysis of public studies
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.
