Session Co-Chairpersons: Hiroshi Okabe, Japan Oil, Gas and Metals National Corp.

This session presents us several typical practice and studies on environmental remediation and social responsibilities by major oil companies to create a sustainable development with nature and local community. An outlook in Israel’s energy independence is very instructive. The shift from entire energy dependence to energy independence changes the socioeconomic profile. After major oil spills in Timor Sea and GOM, the containment of oil slicks becomes more critical and can be achieved by overlaying model projection to identify, assess and minimise the environmental risk. There is another paper about developing best environmental practices by identifying the relevance of a few public or controlled documents and assess the gaps. Total shared its preliminary experience to achieve end-point TPH criteria 1% within less 8 months. Also we will be glad to see some guidelines about integrity of storage tanks. At last, we will hear from PTTEP about their efforts to help local farmer on rice project in northeast Thailand.
