The project delivery model will identify the best industry standards and practices for appraising environmental and social matters that need to be managed throughout the life cycle of a project. This model is paramount since mining and oil & gas project lifecycles entail significant environmental and societal risk that cannot easily be reversed. A summary of the most significant key environmental and societal risks and some of the critical public concerns will be presented.
Upon completion of the course, participants will be able to understand the global prevailing environmental and societal context for the mining and oil & gas sectors. This context includes a review of the legal requirements and standards that impact local environs and an understanding of the techniques for environmental, social and economic impact assessments. The necessary mitigation including appropriate control measures, stakeholder's mapping, public consultation and disclosure plans. To ensure compliance with the project delivery model the key performance indicators and the monitoring and environmental management plans will be discussed. The final step in the environmental and societal delivery model will be the development of a Reclamation Plan for Closure and Post-Closure.
At the end of the Programme, Participants will be able to:-
- Identify critical environmental issues to be monitored in the course of exploration and production to closure of hydrocarbon projects.
- Carry out environmental risks and impact assessment for new and ongoing projects.
- Prepare Environmental Management Plan necessary to contain footprint of oil and gas projects.
- Monitor and report on quality of ground, water and air impacted by the project.
The programme will be beneficial to environmental regulators, managers, operations staff, financial analysts, environmental engineers, auditors, project managers and ENGOs.
