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.


The Environmental Partnership’s Spring Workshop 2018

On Friday April 4th, the Environmental Partnership hosted its first industry conference in Odessa, Texas. At the conference, participants enjoyed a rare opportunity to come together with their colleagues in the natural gas and oil industry. The conference, 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.

During the conference, participants learned the foundations of implementing an effective leak detection and repair program and how, through use of readily-available software, the leak surveys and results can be tracked in the company’s database to effectively manage timely repair. Attendees also learned about current and pending environmental regulations that will impact their operations and how one company has changed their approach to site designs in an effort further minimize emissions.

The conference also included ample question and answer periods, where participants were able to discuss their own unique situations and how to better improve their technologies and practices.

“As a smaller operator in the Permian, it was important for us to attend and have an opportunity to communicate to the other local operators the value of being a participating company in The Environmental Partnership,” – Tyler Timmons, Production Engineer for Crownquest.

“We’re very supportive of The Environmental Partnership and its mission. This conference provided us an opportunity to share some of our learnings and the best practices that we have incorporated into our operations,” – XTO Energy’s Nina Hutton, Vice President – Environmental, Health & Safety.

“The staff of University Lands is encouraging all Oil & Gas Operators to consider joining the Environmental Partnership.  This opportunity to participate and be recognized as a member of this important Program provides oil and gas producers with a way to collectively demonstrate the environmental stewardship that is being achieved by our industry,” – Richard Brantley, Sr. VP Operations with University Lands.
