E-SHRIMP gets an update

In 2007, IOGP published a flexible approach to environmental, social and health stewardship associated with oil and gas projects throughout the upstream asset lifecycle.

Now, Report 529, Overview of IOGP’s Environmental-Social-Health Risk and Impact Management Process, provides guidance on the major activities that underpin the E-SHRIMP approach.  It also gives further information on how to do an environmental, social and health impact assessment (ESHIA). The report also features a comprehensive bibliography.

The benefits of the E-SHRIMP approach include:

  • making better decisions throughout the project lifecycle
  • improving the implementation of the mitigation hierarchy
  • enhancing industry reputation when implementing projects in difficult and sensitive physical, biological, social and political settings
  • enhancing the management of relationships with key stakeholders
