Description

Study this guide to minimize the transfer of Alien invasive species at both onshore and offshore operations, and minimize adverse outcomes.

When species become established outside their natural range as a result of human activity and threaten biodiversity, they are defined as ‘alien invasive species’ (AIS)……This guidance is the first that is specific to the oil and gas industry. Applied judiciously, IPIECA/OGP anticipate that it will raise awareness of the issue amongst on-the-ground staff and promote a practical and proactive risk-based approach that will in turn reinforce the need for active consideration of AIS from the earliest oil and gas activities. Ultimately this will help to minimize the transfer of AIS at both onshore and offshore operations, and minimize adverse outcomes.
