EO100™ Standard for Responsible Energy Development
Equitable Origin developed a comprehensive social and environmental performance standard for energy development operations, the “EO100™ Standard.” The EO100™ Standard is the foundational standard for the EO System and companion to technical addenda like the EO100™ for Shale Oil and Gas Operations.
EO100™ for Conventional Onshore Oil & Gas
This technical addendum contains the additional provisions relevant to application of the EO100™ in a conventional, onshore oil and gas development setting and should be applied in tandem with the full EO100™.
EO100™ Standard for Shale Oil & Gas
While similar to conventional oil and gas operations, shale gas and tight oil extraction operations make a unique set of social and environmental impacts on surrounding areas. To address these impacts, Equitable Origin created the EO100™ Standard for Shale Oil & Gas Operations, a technical addendum to the EO100™ Standard for Responsible Energy Development. The addendum is currently in draft form.
Equitable Origin’s Monitoring & Evaluation Report
The M&E Program has been under development since 2012 and will move into the implementation phase in 2017. A complete description of the program’s structure, objectives, and methodology is available in the M&E Public System Report. It is anticipated that Equitable Origin will begin reporting on the results of the M & E program in 2018.
2013 Standard Amendment
Prompted by stakeholder feedback, in 2013, the Equitable Origin Board of Directors determined that it was necessary to incorporate a provision related to security and human rights in order to address a fundamental issue that has been the subject of some of the most significant human rights cases in the oil and gas sector. EC-Guide_O&G notes that impacts related to the actions of private or public security forces are a leading human rights issue for the sector. The Technical Committee drafted a new Provision and Performance Targets that were open for public comment for 60 days between mid-August and mid-October, 2013.
