What would happen to your business tomorrow if you could no longer use water? Water is an essential input to operations and influences the frequency and cost of key asset maintenance. These risks are found across the entire span of business operations and have material impacts on operations, sustainability strategies, and balance sheets. Water is also a unique and deeply emotional resource, with the United Nations recognizing water access as a human right. Both shareholders and stakeholders increasingly demand meaningful disclosures on water in the ESG context. Sustainability leaders in oil and gas need to be able to understand, mitigate, and communicate about their companies’ water risks, impacts, and opportunities. They need practical approaches to manage regulatory changes and challenging scenarios, such as water shortages, floods, and sharp changes in water quality. To do this, companies need a water strategy. After this course you will have a clear understanding of how a water strategy prepares businesses to respond, adapt, and lead as risks and opportunities emerge around this essential resource. This live course is delivered by Kim Sturgess, CEO & founder and Edwin Piñero, special advisor, WaterSMART in partnership with JWN Energy and the Daily Oil Bulletin.   Who should attend? This course is recommended for oil and gas professionals in all streams of oil and gas production, including those creating alternative products within the oil and gas value chain (e.g. hydrogen, petrochemicals, etc.).

This course focuses on measuring, quantifying, and reporting Scope 1 greenhouse gas emissions from upstream oil & gas (O&G) facilities. Scope 1 emissions are emitted directly to the atmosphere from within a facility fence line. Regulatory requirements, as well as voluntary reporting guidance, have increased the importance of understanding and reporting Scope 1 emissions. To understand and quantify emissions, the site fence line must be understood, an equipment inventory must be developed, methodology must be confirmed, and assurance must take place to ensure that emissions are adequately reported. Various methods exist for emissions quantification including direct continuous emissions monitoring, sampling, and emissions factor development. These methods, commonly called method 1, 2, and 3, will be described, and an overview of when each method is appropriate will be given. Identifying sources of emissions is the first step in quantifying emissions. Typical Scope 1 emissions include combustion, flaring, venting, and fugitives. Knowing your sources and understanding how the system functions are crucial for accurate quantification. The course will conclude with a real facility example, giving students the chance to put their new skills to use by identifying typical emissions sources, quantifying them, and reporting them.     This live course is delivered by Jessica Shumlich, CEO, Highwood Emissions Management, in partnership with JWN Energy and the Daily Oil Bulletin. Highwood Emissions Management works with industry, government, and innovators around the world to leverage data, analytics, knowledge, and experience to optimize emissions management. Their mission is to collaborate, innovate, and educate their way to a world with effective and affordable emissions management solutions.   Who should attend? The course is recommended for any individual who designs, maintains, or operates facilities within the O&G industry, including operations and maintenance personnel and their environmental counterparts who conduct quantification and reporting. This will help operations and maintenance personnel to understand emissions so they can support reduction efforts.   Date: Tuesday, Oct. 19, 2021 Duration: 4 hours training, plus 60 minutes of intermittent breaks Time: 8:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. (MST) Cost: US$400 (excluding applicable taxes) See below for Course policy   Presenter:  Jessica Shumlich, CEO, Highwood Emissions Management Jessica Shumlich (P.Eng., MM) is the chief executive officer and co-founder of Highwood Emissions Management.

Reducing greenhouse gas emissions is key to reducing climate change. Many oil and gas producers, processers, transporters, and service companies are taking drastic action to cut the emissions from their direct operations. The emissions from a company’s direct operations are otherwise known as scope 1 emissions. Increasingly, there is a call for emissions reductions go beyond scope 1 emissions. Emissions from electricity and heat utilized on site (known as scope 2 emissions) and emissions from the entire value chain of activity that contributes to your process upstream and downstream (known as scope 3 emissions) also need to be understood and reduced to tackle climate change. This course focuses on scope 2 and scope 3 emissions that are generated due to the production of oil and gas products. Lifecycle emissions is a term often used when looking at a product at every stage of its process. Although lifecycle is a broad term, this course will look at all the emissions that need to be considered with different inputs into the product as well as future use and disposal. By looking at the lifecycle of emissions upstream, midstream, downstream, oilfield services (OFS), and the end consumer all play a role. This course continues to give an overview on how to quantify the emissions identified and give real life examples of emissions across the value chain. Corporate action in reducing scope 2 and 3 emissions is advantageous for businesses as there are many benefits, perhaps not directly obvious. You should take this course if the following sounds familiar to you: Are your shareholders or boards demanding accountability for emissions reductions? Are your stakeholders pressuring your company for emissions reduction? Are your clients (i.e. oil and gas companies) demanding emissions reporting and reductions? Are you curious how to reduce emissions across the value chain?   This live course is delivered by Jessica Shumlich, CEO, Highwood Emissions Management, in partnership with JWN Energy and the Daily Oil Bulletin. Who should attend? The course is recommended for any oil and gas professional who is involved in the value chain of oil and gas production. This includes the companies that transport the product and provide services to the company producing the product. Perhaps it is the first time your company is going to publish an emissions reduction target, perhaps you are looking for information on how to improve your long-standing environmental performance, or perhaps you want to market your service as a low emissions offering. This course is for industry leaders who want to reduce their emissions or are increasingly facing public pressures to do so. The specific target audiences are as follows: Senior leadership who set the vision for their company Communications teams who publish public facing reports OFS company providers looking to sell into a market that demands low emission services Environmental and regulatory personnel who are tasked with emissions reduction efforts Date: Tuesday, Oct. 26, 2021 Duration: 3 hours including Q&A and intermittent breaks Time: 9:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. (MT) Cost: US$400 (excluding applicable taxes) Discounts: Special pricing is available for students. Discounts also apply for multiple company registrations. For more information contact customerservice@jwnenergy.com See below for Course policy Learning Outcomes: After the course, the learner will have the basic tools to understand where emissions come from across the value chain, and what methodologies there are for reporting. Students will be equipped with a strong foundation for what data is needed for quantifying and reporting and how to develop a greenhouse gas emissions inventory that includes all emissions. As a result of this course, learners will be equipped with the following skills: Ability to identify upstream and downstream emissions sources Basic understanding of scope 2 & 3 emissions quantification Identification of largest source of emissions reduction potential Understanding on reporting mechanisms for scope 2 & 3 emissions Presenter:  Jessica Shumlich, CEO, Highwood Emissions Management Jessica Shumlich (P.Eng., MM) is the chief executive officer and co-founder of Highwood Emissions Management.
