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
The Oil Spill Industry Project (JIP) technical report (Revision 2016)
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 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
The Oil Spill Joint Industry Project (JIP) technical report (Revision 2016)
This informative document was developed primarily for external stakeholders. It outlines why it is important for the oil and gas industry to save energy and describes key actions being taken, including: ...
The publication defines and explains many of the terms commonly used at the climate change negotiations and other meetings.
A compare-and-contrast analysis of public studies
Indicators for the health performance of the industry are a necessary part of effective health management and the promotion of improvements in health performance. Currently there is no globally applied set of performance indicators within the oil and gas industry. This document updates the 1999 OGP publication Health Performance Indicators (Report 6.78/290) in the context of recently agreed guidance on voluntary sustainability reporting (API/Ipieca, 2005) and the growth of health management standards. It builds on that early guidance to provide a more practical and detailed set of stand-alone health indicators.
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.
