GHG Reporting workshop programme by KLNS4Q


									Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Emissions Reporting workshop
Tuesday 1 March 2011

In 2003 IPIECA published the Petroleum Industry Guidelines for Reporting Greenhouse Gas Emissions
(“Guidelines”), assisting oil and gas companies in voluntary reporting of GHG. Continuing this work,
IPIECA subsequently published guidelines on GHG reduction projects (general, carbon capture and
geological storage, and flaring) and uncertainty.

Due to the evolution of reporting (both voluntary and under regulatory requirements, IPIECA has
completed an update to the Guidelines. This update makes essential changes in order to meet the needs
of members and to maintain consistency, where relevant to the oil and gas sector, between the guidelines
and other nationally or internationally recognized GHG inventory standards and/or guidelines.

Workshop Objective
To inform IPIECA members of the major revisions to the GHG reporting guidelines, as well as update on
recent activity on reporting, both voluntary and regulatory in Europe and the USA.
