EnerGeo Alliance Programs increase efficiencies, reduce waste and provide consistent industry-wide standards and best practices which improve performance while decreasing costs of permitting and compliance.
Gulf of Mexico Proactive Regulatory and Observational Program (GOM-PROP)
The GOM-PROP program provides regulatory support for all participating companies with exploration and/or production activities in the GOM.
The Program creates and maintains a long-term, self-sustaining framework to ensure regulatory stability in the GOM, based on industry-collected observer data and the best available science, maximizing environmental benefit while minimizing industry burden of compliance so operations can be conducted in a safe and commercially viable manner.
Participation in GOM-PROP satisfies the annual reporting requirement of Letter of Authorization holders under “Taking Marine Mammals Incidental to Geophysical Surveys Related to Oil and Gas Activities in the Gulf of Mexico,” (commonly referred to as the “Gulf of Mexico ITR”).
Provides a structure for industry to petition for a new Gulf of Mexico ITR to supplant the existing Rule, which is set to expire in 2026.
Participants have access to a first-of-its-kind database visualizing the detections of protected species during activities authorized under the Gulf of Mexico ITR.
Netuno Environmental Database Program (Netuno)
The Netuno program enables compliance with the Brazilian Environmental and Renewable Resources Institute (IBAMA) Terms of Reference for offshore seismic surveys in Brazil.
Netuno is a virtual portal that provides public environmental data from project implementations.
This data, uploaded by members, has been a permit condition for all offshore seismic acquisitions in Brazil since mid-2018, offering valuable insights and transparency for both members and regulators.
Under the management of EnerGeo, the Netuno database is continuously evolving, enhancing its efficiency to support the regulator’s decisions and members’ environmental project management and compliance.
EnerGeo’s ultimate aim is to provide a reliable ESG tool while expanding the database’s reach and usage.
Seismic Efficiency Initiative & Safety Program (SEIS)
The SEIS program provides specific counsel-approved initiatives, best practices and standards to promote environmental protection, safety and efficiency within the Energy Geoscience Industry.
The Program incorporates shared audits and inspections, standardized vessel specifications report, standardized HSSE tender questionnaire, and HSSE performance statistics all within the SEIS Database and HSSE Statistics Database for use by program members.
This industry-led effort provides a suite of products to create efficiency enhancing initiatives built upon the EnerGeo Alliance’s Strategic Framework to accelerate value creation and shorten project cycles by saving the industry tens of thousands of hours over the next decade and allow for more time to be spent on bespoke technological and project-specific solutions.
The newly developed HSSE Statistics Database includes the capability for participants to create their own reports, charts, and graphs. Additionally, this includes a new feature never-before utilized in the energy geoscience industry: drill-down capability to find trends in incidents for a specific year as well as year over year. Previous years’ reports only included overall sums of incidents but no connected statistics.
