Data projecting from computer

EEMS is the environmental database of the UK oil and gas industry. It provides measured and calculated data relating to emissions from offshore installations and associated onshore terminals. The system is managed by Collabro and is accessible to government through DECC, industry and Oil & Gas UK. 

The EEMS website is intended to assist all parties with an interest in environmental issues to understand how the industry operates an effective policy for reporting on the environmental impact of its activities. Access to the system itself is restricted to authorised users through controlled usernames and passwords.



Oil & Gas UK has sponsored EEMS since 1992 on behalf of its member companies. It views the maintenance of a high quality, accurate database of environmental data as key to fulfilling the industry's commitment to a cleaner and safer North Sea environment. Since 1997 EEMS has been the single source of data for both the industry and government.

DECC regards the EEMS system as a key element in its environmental regulatory function. It is the mechanism through which oil companies can submit their environmental returns, which are used by DECC for government reporting requirements.


The table below illustrates the governance structure for EEMs.
