|DNV GL RESOURCE MAP|
Resource size: Combination of resource size and recovery factor. A high score represents a large resource.
Economic impact: Economic effect on local communities, economic strength of the country is used as a proxy. A high score represents a large economic effect on the local community and a low economic strength of the country.
Break even cost: Combination of capex and opex. A high score represents a low break even cost.
Energy: Energy intensity for production of the resource. A high score represents low energy intensity.
Climate change: Greenhouse gas emissions due to greenhouse gas content in the resource as well as greenhouse gas emissions from the production processes including flaring. A high score represents low emissions.
Ecosystem services: Impact on biodiversity and ecosystem services as well as fresh water usage. A high score represents a low impact.
Local environmental impact: Combination of SO2 emissions due to sulphur content in resource; other air emissions related to production processes; spills to the environment; discharges to water and waste generation. A high score represents a low impact.
Local content: Local content for production. A high score represents large share of local content.
Community impact: Community impact and engagement including labour practices and human rights in the country of operation, social strength in the country of operation is used as proxy. A high score represents a high social strength.
Corruption: Corruption level in the country of operation. A high score represents a low corruption level.
Safety: Combination of strength of safety regime and safety performance. A high score represents a strong regime and good performance.
Security: Security situation in the country of operation. A high score represents a good security situation.
|INFORMATION ABOUT OUR FRAMEWORK|
DNV GL has developed a framework for benchmarking different oil and resources. In order to minimise the negative impact of oil and gas developments while maximising the positive impacts, a broader set of criteria is needed than the pure financial measurements used today.
Total impact = ∑ Economic impacts + ∑ Environmental impact + ∑ Social impact
Both positive and negative impacts are captured in the evaluation.
The resources have been classified according to the categories as defined in the overview below.
The result of the benchmark on a regional level has been visualized in the DNV GL Resource Map. The regions have been defined as illustrated in the figure below and the definition has been taken from International Association of Oil and Gas Producers.
Since the benchmark has been performed on a regional level, the data represents regional averages. Therefore there are countries as well as field developments that scores better and worse within each region.
In the DNV GL Resource Map, the user is able to compare up to 5 different resource types for one or up to all seven regions. The results are presented as traffic lights for the economic, environmental and social performance.
For each region there is a possibility to view a more detailed view of the benchmark and see what lies behind the traffic light results.
