Spills from onshore facilities, including pipelines, can occur due to leaks, equipment failure, accidents, and human error or as a result of third party interference. Develop a spill prevention and control plan. Additional spill prevention and control measures specific to onshore oil and gas facilities include:
Project footprints resulting from exploration and construction activities may include seismic tracks, well pads, temporary facilities, such as workforce base camps, material (pipe) storage yards, workshops, access roads, airstrips and helipads, equipment staging areas, and construction material extraction sites (including borrow pits and quarries). Operational footprints may include well pads,…
Oil and gas development activities can generate noise during all phases of development including the seismic surveys, construction activities, drilling and production, aerial surveys and air or road transportation. During operations, the main sources of noise and vibration pollution are likely to emanate from flaring and rotating equipment. Noise sources…
Typical non-hazardous and hazardous wastes routinely generated at onshore facilities other than permitted effluents and emissions include general office and packaging wastes, waste oils, paraffins, waxes, oil contaminated rags, hydraulic fluids, used batteries, emptypaint cans, waste chemicals and used chemical containers, used filters, fluorescent tubes, scrap metals, and medical waste,…
The guidance below is related to additional wastewater streams specific to the onshore oil and gas sector. Produced water Oil and gas reservoirs contain water (formation water) that is produced when brought to the surface during hydrocarbon production. The produced water stream can be one of the largest waste products,…
Air emissions The main sources of continuous or non-continuous air emissions resulting from onshore activities include: Combustion sources from power and heat generation, Use of compressors, pumps, and reciprocating engines (boilers, turbines, and other engines), Flaring and venting of hydrocarbons, Fugitive emissions.
