IOGP Environmental Performance Indicators – 2022 data is now available. The report is accompanied by a standalone executive summary, and a supplementary document focused on the environmental performance of activities within Europe. This enables the use of upstream emissions data from our EU Producing Members as representative of the EU emissions to be used in the lifecycle analysis of methane emissions.
IOGP has collected and published environmental data from its Member Companies every year since 2001. It allows Member Companies to compare their performance with other companies in the sector leading, it is hoped, to improved and more efficient performance.
The programme also contributes to the industry’s wish to be more transparent about its operations.
The analysis summarizes information on exploration and production (E&P) activities carried out by contributing IOGP Member Companies in 2022. Environmental information is collected for the following categories:
- Gaseous emissions
- Energy consumption
- Produced water discharges
- Non-aqueous drilling fluids retained on cuttings discharged to sea
- Oil and chemical spills
- Fresh water withdrawn for use
Data are collected annually for each of the categories above, on the basis of a set of definitions agreed by the IOGP Membership. These definitions align with Ipieca-API-IOGP Report 437 – Oil and gas industry guidance on voluntary sustainability reporting.
These Reports are available to download from the IOGP Publications Library.
