The International Association of Oil & 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.
This report summarizes information on exploration and production (E&P) activities carried out by contributing IOGP member companies in 2016.
Data have been submitted for the report by 36 of IOGP’s 52 member operating companies covering operations in 76 countries worldwide. This total includes 35 of the 38 companies that contributed data in 2015.
Information is aggregated at both global and regional levels and is expressed within the following environmental indicator categories:
- gaseous emissions
- energy consumption
- aqueous discharges
- non-aqueous drilling fluids retained on cuttings discharged to sea
- spills of oil and chemicals
- fresh water withdrawn from environment.
