This fact sheet on provides a high-level overview of how companies in the oil and gas sector can define, assess and respond to water risks.
This webinar provides an overview of the 'Reuse of produced water from the onshore oil and gas industry' fact sheet, outlining opportunities and challenges for reusing produced water, with examples from Ipieca members Total, Occidental and Shell.
Ipieca has developed a new fact sheet on evaluating the opportunities and challenges of reusing produced water for the onshore oil and gas industry.
The guidance presents a systematic process for the onshore oil and gas industry to identify and assess potential measures to improve water efficiency via incorporating the principles of water stewardship, integrating water resource management
This awareness briefing provides an overview of water management in the onshore development and production of oil and gas from shale.
Shaping water management plans to meet local risks. Eni corporate worldwide oil and gas, petrochemical, refining and engineering operations.
In late 2013, Ipieca co-hosted a webinar and workshop with the Global Environmental Management Initiative (GEMI) focused on water risk assessment tools, including the Ipieca Global Water Tool (GWT) for Oil and Gas, a customised version of the World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD) Global Water Tool, the GEMI Local Water Tool (LWT)
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
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.
