Oil and Gas || ||
ERM has completed over 5000 projects for the Oil & Gas industry worldwide. We provide environmental services across the spectrum of upstream and downstream activities, helping companies address traditional and upcoming issues. Current emerging challenges include:
Exploration & Production activities in frontier areas: Oil and Gas companies today are exploring increasingly wild and sensitive territories - West Shetland in Scotland, West Delta in the Atlantic, the Caribbean etc. - which entail increasingly complex environmental and social issues.
Flaring and greenhouse emissions: the gloabl climate change agenda has very specific implications for the oil and gas industry,and factoring CO2 emissions into operations is a key concern
Chemical pollution and biodiversity: increasing diversification into chemical production brings Oil & Gas companies into contact with a host of new pollution and in particular health risks which they must address (hormone destructer, oestrogen mimics etc).
