干净的水

Working to Keep Our Waters Clean

清洁水对生命至关重要,其供应受到限制,因此必须仔细利用,确保其保护未来几代人。API和我们的会员致力于确保继续提供高质量的水。钻油和天然气井,从井中泵送油,炼油原油,原油运输或精制产品以及灌装站的操作是大多数人在考虑行业时的想法。这些操作中的每一个都具有与水接触的独特可能性。遵守保护我们河流,湖泊和海洋以及美国和全世界地下水资源的环境法律法规才是第一步。我们还投资许多科学研究,了解产品和活动对环境,水生生命和人类健康的可能影响。我们使用这些信息来修改和改进环境和商业惯例以照顾这一重要资源。

要了解有关这些环境法规和科学研究的更多信息,以及石油和天然气工业采取的行动,以确保水仍然清洁,参观我们网站的以下部分。其他链接将提供有关防止或快速响应溢油情况并保存水的行动的信息。

Surface Water Quality

For information about the scientific research undertaken and the advanced technology used to safeguard our nation's oceans, lakes, and rivers, including water quality criteria, standards and other regulatory issues.

Soil and Groundwater Research

一个PI-sponsored research yields practical tools and basic science for risk-based, cost-effective decision making. API Soil and Groundwater Research Bulletins summarize research results from projects overseen by API's Soil and Groundwater Technical Task Force. The Task Force disseminates information and research results through publications, presentations and interaction with industry clients and regulatory agencies.

节约用水

The oil and natural gas industry practices environmental protection and water conservation as a part of many of their operations. These practices are good for business, of course, but they also help protect and conserve resources. As an example, it is common practice for oil refineries to employ "cogeneration". That means that excess energy from normal operations, either in the form of steam or heat, can be used to create additional electrical power.

Oil Spill Prevention

For information about actions by API members, working together with state and federal government agencies to minimize potential effects of oil spills on the environment or on human health.
