Fact sheets

OGP produces a number of fact sheets which provide information on the oil & gas industry and areas of particular interest. The sheets are grouped into five areas – Post-Macondo milestones, the basics, the Arctic, hydraulic fracturing and Rio +20.

Post-Macondo milestones

A summary of how the industry has implemented recommendations set out by OGP’s Global Industry Response Group (GIRG). It provides implementation updates in each of the three GIRG areas,  as well as on mutual aid agreements that transcend companies and borders.

The basics - Introduction to the upstream industry

Arctic oil & gas


In June 2012, world leaders, representatives of governments, the private sector, NGOs and other groups, came together at Rio+20 to shape how to reduce poverty, advance social equity and ensure environmental protection on an increasingly crowded planet.

As part of the oil & gas industry's contribution to this global event, IPIECA and OGP have developed a series of fact sheets.

These are also available on the Rio+20 mini-site.
