Information and Learning
Participants in The Environmental Partnership have committed to continuous learning about the latest industry innovations and best practices that can further reduce their own environmental footprint while safely and responsibly growing energy production.
One benefit to participating in The Environmental Partnership is access to our industry workshops. These workshops bring together large and small companies, and provide an opportunity to share information and discuss best practices.
In the Fall of 2022, The Environmental Partnership held a workshop, hosted by Chevron, in Midland, Texas. The event provided Permian operators with an opportunity to learn more about evolving technologies for emissions detection and mitigation – from continuous monitoring to aerial surveying – as well as a discussion about the projects within The Partnership, including an overview of the compressor study underway in collaboration with Colorado State University (CSU).
In July 2022, The Partnership returned to North Dakota, bringing Bakken operators together to tackle shared challenges and learn about best practices through open dialogue with their industry peers. The Bakken Workshop covered emerging technologies and participant emissions detections efforts as well as a presentation on produced water management, a topic of increasing interest among participants. The workshop also included an update from North Dakota Department of Environmental Quality on their work with industry.
The Environmental Partnership Permian Workshop 2021
The Environmental Partnership returned to in-person workshops on October 28, 2021. Hosted by Chevron under a large tent at its Midcontinent Headquarters Campus in Midland, TX, the day brought together nearly 100 individuals from companies operating across the Permian to share experiences and learn about best practices.
The workshop included presentations from Blue Racer Midstream, DCP Midstream, ExxonMobil, Devon, and Ovintiv. These presentations covered emerging technologies for emissions detection and mitigation including everything from aerial surveying to pipeline blowdown technologies to tank vapor control designs. The day concluded with a presentation on the best practices for proper flare combustion and how to minimize compressor emissions.
The Environmental Partnership’s 2019 Bakken Workshop, hosted by Lime Rock Resources on July 25th, included presentations by oil and natural gas producers, the North Dakota Department of Environmental Quality and the North Dakota Petroleum Council, all focusing on operations in North Dakota and Montana.
The Environmental Partnership held its Oklahoma workshop on April 11th, 2019 in Oklahoma City. It was hosted by Baker Hughes, a GE Company, at their Energy Innovation Center.
The Environmental Partnership’s 2019 Permian Basin Workshop included local operators sharing information on a variety of environmental topics important to oil and natural gas producers. The workshop, hosted by Chevron, was held April 9th in Midland, Texas.
The Environmental Partnership held its second workshop on Thursday, July 26th, 2018 in Canonsburg, Pennsylvania, located just outside of Pittsburgh. The workshop brought together individuals from 20 different organizations and companies for presentations on a number of critical issues facing oil and gas companies.
On Friday April 4th, the Environmental Partnership hosted its first industry workshop in Odessa, Texas. At the workshop, participants enjoyed a rare opportunity to come together with their colleagues in the oil and natural gas industry. The workshop, hosted by Baker Hughes, included multiple presentations from industry experts on how companies could further reduce their environmental footprints in a cost-effective manner. More than 30 companies were represented, and an afternoon session was added to accommodate the large number of attendees.
