EO100™ Technical Supplement EO100.3: Natural Gas Transmission & Storage (DRAFT FOR REVIEW)
The EO100™ Technical Supplement EO100.3: Natural Gas Transmission & Storage is currently a Draft for Review.
Operators seeking certification for purely the transmission & storage segments of the natural gas value chain are assessed against the EO100TM Technical Supplement for Natural Gas Transmission & Storage and the overarching EO100TM Standard for Responsible Energy Development. For operations that also contain production, gathering, boosting and/or processing EO100™ Technical Supplement for Onshore Natural Gas and Light Oil Production and EO100™ Technical Supplement for Natural Gas Gathering/Boosting and Processing, respectively will be applied.
This Technical Supplement: Onshore Natural Gas Transmission & Storage covers the transmission & storage natural gas value chain sector. This Technical Supplement applies to Operators with operations within the natural gas transmission & storage segments of the natural gas value chain. The overarching EO100™ Standard for Responsible Energy Development applies to all Operators seeking certification and one or more additional technical supplements are applied in addition.
The Technical Supplements to the EO100™ Standard for Responsible Energy Development serve to add specific Performance Targets under the following five Principles of the Standard for oil and gas operators seeking EO100™ certification:
• Principle 1: Corporate Governance, Transparency & Business Ethics
• Principle 2: Human Rights, Social Impacts & Community Development
• Principle 3: Indigenous Peoples’ Rights
• Principle 4: Fair Labor & Working Conditions
• Principle 5: Climate Change, Biodiversity & Environment
The Performance Targets in the document reflect the expectations of multiple stakeholders regarding management and mitigation of social and environmental impacts associated with operators of natural gas pipeline and storage infrastructure.
