The IPIECA, the global oil and gas industry association for environmental and social issues, in partnership with the International Association of Oil & Gas Producers (IOGP), has completed seven of the 24 Good Practice Guides that are being rewritten or newly created as part of the update of the IPIECA oil spill preparedness and response report series.
Titles in the completed Guides include:

The guides produced by the IPIECA-IOGP Oil Spill Response Joint Industry Project (OSR-JIP) are now available for download on the OSR-JIP website.
The revised series, including the addition of entirely new documents, is expected to be finished in March 2015. New publications will be added to the IPIECA website when available.
