01P Water: Threat or Opportunity? Sharing the Water Commons

While water is essential to sustaining life and livelihoods, the world’s water systems are facing threats. More than one billion people live in water-scarce regions and it is predicted that by 2030, global water demand could outstrip supply by 40%. Increasing agricultural, municipal and industrial withdrawals and discharges are degrading some freshwater and coastal aquatic ecosystems, and climate change is set to shift precipitation patterns and speed up glacial melt, altering water supplies and intensifying floods and droughts. The energy industry will increasingly face competition for the water resources it relies on and new pressure points will emerge which will transform the business landscape. Large-scale resource extraction and processing operations that rely on water and have limited ability to relocate are particularly vulnerable, even more so if those operations are located in impoverished, volatile states. This Panel will identify strategic water management challenges facing the energy industry; explore the relevance of water to decision-making; address the growing importance of water rights; discuss the drivers of future water policy; and explore what represents good water governance. Drawing on examples from inside and outside the energy industry, participants will consider the role of innovation in finding sustainable solutions to the energy/water nexus; demonstrate what sustainability means; and emphasise the value of sound risk management based on environmental, social, legal, and economic perspectives.

02t Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services

Session Chairpersons:

Jacques Miné, Total; Paola Maria Pedroni, ENI

The oil and gas industry has long recognised the business value of identifying and managing dependencies and potential impacts of its operations on the natural environment (biodiversity) and the resources it delivers (ecosystem services). This session provides representative examples of implementation of good practices that illustrate how these issues can be effectively addressed along the asset lifecycle.

05t Integrating Community Knowledge For Project Success

Session Chairpersons:

Muriel Barnier, Schlumberger; Michael J. Seymour, Shell

Participants will hear presentations on the value of knowledge sharing with community members or current community partners. The lessons include how companies implement and assess full socio-economic impact and form relationships with the communities to understand which tools or technology should be engaged for successful field development. The presenters will discuss lessons learned from Native dwellers to understand local and traditional knowledge of behavior in a variety of contexts. This includes partnerships with the Native Governments to document knowledge, utilising semi-directed interviews, and community advisors. The approaches presented are based on open dialogue with stakeholders, on community participation in defining projects, skills development and capacity building of the community to ensure the sustainability of social investment projects. Many of these examples will benefit the participants because the presenters have been recognised as a world reference. There have been many challenges and lessons learned during those years that will be shared with this audience.

08P Sustainability To Drive Innovation and Value Creation

The challenge of sustainable human development is leading to opportunities for innovation in almost every aspect of life on this planet. Businesses are economic instruments driven by demand, amongst other factors. Sustainability is creating a new category of demand—solutions that reduce humankind’s impact on the planet. This session will present a framework that is being used by leading corporations to identify and quantify how value can be captured from sustainability. Case studies drawn from inside and outside oil and gas industry will demonstrate how sustainability is being deployed to deliver better risk management, greater financial returns and new business opportunities. Participants will be encouraged to reflect on the case studies and offer up examples of innovative value creation, anchored in the emerging demand for more sustainable products and services.

12t Investing in Partnerships for Long Term Development

Session Chairpersons:

Muriel Barnier, Schlumberger; Helen Murphy, IPIECA

Investment in unconventional partnerships is a proven process to target successful strategies in the energy sector. Public-Private Partnerships (PPP) is the tool that the international development community, including international financial institutions (IFIs) are increasingly utilising for developing and/or enhancing critical public infrastructure assets services. The lessons learned from these extensive and successful efforts along with the evaluations will be presented in this technical session. The methodologies for success covered will include Social integration which means not only working together with communities and local authorities, but also building together a common vision of local development. The session will include how common vision on the development of a particular territory arises from a dialogue among the visions of local communities, authorities, technicians and employees. Technical session participants will be exposed to plans that integrate efficiently with projects and programmes planned with local inhabitants; nongovernmental organisations; any authority; and energy companies. The novelty of the proposal is the method of participative planning that makes sure the inhabitants are promoters of sustainable cities and share the vision of energy companies about their future development.

14P Behavioural Safety: A Valuable Approach to Multicultural Workplaces

The increasing need to recruit local resources in oil and gas operation and the oil price constraints pose a real challenge to the industry, which presents the following issues: ~ Multilingual workforce ~ Lack of specific competency and low perception of risks ~ Different cultural and religious aspects ~ Need for short-term assignments that imply reluctance to selfengagement ~ Poor attention to personal safety and fatalism ~ Poor recognition of authority to indigenous supervisors These issues require assessment and management of Behavioural aspects, focused on risk perception, polite and constructive two-way communication, investment in high-profile local resources, training, reporting of unsafe acts, and incentives focused on safety behaviors.
