2013e summarizes information on exploration and production (E&P) activities carried out by contributing IOGP member companies in 2013.
The International Association of Oil and Gas Producers (IOGP) has collected environmental data from its member companies every year since 1999. The objective of this programme has been to allow 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.
Data have been submitted for the report by 43 of IOGP’s 63 member operating companies working in 84 countries worldwide. This total includes three companies reporting for the first time this year and 39 of the 43 companies that contributed data in 2012. Information is aggregated at both global and regional levels and is expressed within 6 environmental indicator categories.
