Full Description
IPIECA is the global oil and gas industry association for environmental and social issues. IPIECA was formed in 1974 following the launch of the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP). IPIECA is the only global association involving both the upstream and downstream oil and gas industry on environmental and social issues. IPIECA's membership covers over half of the world's oil production. IPIECA is the industry's principal channel of communication with the United Nations.
 
Brian's discussion will provide an overview of IPIECA and the priority topics being addressed by the organization and its members.  He will also provide an overview of IPIECAs efforts in the area of freshwater management for the oil and gas industry.  IPIECA has recently launched a local water tool to support the identification of localized freshwater risks associated with oil and gas operations.
