Oil and gas

Whether corporate strategy or hands-on project contributions, on-shore or off-shore developments, we help our oil and gas clients manage biodiversity risks in very complex arenas.

Offshore oil rigThere is increasing recognition in the oil and gas industry of the need to explore and develop reserves without adverse environmental effects. This means integrating biodiversity management into business practices and operations throughout the project lifecycle. To facilitate this integration, we provide scientifically robust expertise with practical solutions based on international best practice for a wide range of IPIECA members. Examples of our oil and gas projects include: providing corporate support to Shell with its biodiversity risk management and with screening and planning for biodiversity risks in oil and gas projects. In 2015 at the International Congress for Conservation Biology (ICCB), we joined up with TOTAL to co-present our shared key insights into why and how the oil and gas industry manage biodiversity risks: Biodiversity management in business_ ICCB presentation 2015.
