As the concern raises for continually improving the quality of the environment, organisations of all types and sizes are increasingly turning attention to the environmental impact of their activities, products, and services. The environmental performance of an organisation is of importance to internal and external interested parties. Achieving sound environmental performance requires organisational commitment to a systematic approach and continual improvement of their environmental performance.

This training course provides an overview of the environmental issues and the technical and management approaches to achieving high environmental performance in the activities necessary for world oil and gas exploration and production. Management systems and practices, technologies and procedures are described that prevent and minimise impact. The continued sharing of best practices and comprehensive management systems by oil companies and their contractors and suppliers are essential. The role of Organisations in setting and enforcing regulations is also key to minimising the potential environmental impact. The trend towards performance-based regulations, rather than the traditional command and control approach, can stimulate more innovative and effective environmental management in all areas of the world.

Objectives

Environmental monitoring defines the processes and activities that need to characterise and monitor the quality of the environment. It is used to prepare environmental impact assessments and in several conditions in which human activities convey a risk of harmful effects on the natural environment. 

All monitoring strategies and programs have reasons and justifications designed to establish an environment's status or trends in environmental parameters. 

By the end of this training course, the participants will be able to:

  • Understand the types of environmental aspects and their environmental impacts
  • Know the requirements of the newly revised ISO 1400 standard
  • Identify all the waste stream types and opportunities for reducing costs of waste
  • Understand environmental management system definitions, concepts, and guidelines
  • Comprehend the intent and requirements of the ISO 14001 standard
  • Understand the EMS implementation stages, learn best practice techniques, examine useful tools, and understand the integration of the EMS with other environmental programs
  • Apply environmental management principles to achieve continual EMS improvement

Methodology

The participants will learn in a lively, enthusiastic, and exciting style through inspiring presentation tools and interactive techniques. They will participate in practical team exercises, typical case studies, and open discussion forums related to their own organisation’s operational activities.

This Environmental Monitoring, Modelling, and Rehabilitation training course combines instruction on the latest developments in the field of Environmental Management Systems with best practices for environmental compliance, including real-world case studies, video dramatisations, self-assessments, participatory discussions, and many exercises to make the course an exciting and enriching learning experience.
