Through their lifecycle, oil and gas operations intersect the entire ecosystem including water, soil, air and the human environment. Leveraging best management practices at every phase helps keep operations profitable and sustainable while mitigating damage to the natural environment that may negatively impact operations in the future. This lesson focuses on non-water environmental factors including best management practices for construction of production sites and pipelines, surface reclamation, the impact and regulation of oil spills, solids disposal and monitoring, fugitive emissions and gas flaring, soil and air impacts, and the potential risks of naturally occurring radioactive material.

This lesson is also included in the Environmental Stewardship Full Course.
