1 Scope 1 includes onshore and offshore U.S. EPA GHGRP boundaries and international activities (Mozambique).
2 U.S. EPA GHGRP boundaries
3 The divestiture of operations in Texas and Pennsylvania in 2017 accounts for the decrease in total Scope 1 emissions reported compared to 2016.
4 U.S. EPA GHGRP boundaries, U.S. onshore only
5 Calculated by dividing U.S. onshore upstream methane emissions (U.S. EPA GHGRP boundaries) by total U.S. onshore operated oil and natural gas production
6 The expansion of boundaries for U.S. EPA GHGRP compliance to include the gathering and boosting sector in 2016 accounts for the increase in total Scope 1 emissions reported compared to 2015.
7 Calculated by dividing U.S. onshore midstream methane emissions (U.S. EPA GHGRP boundaries) by average processing net throughput as reported in Anadarko’s 2017 Annual Report and 10k
8 U.S. onshore and international activities, variable boundaries
9 Per CDP, fresh water sources are generally characterized by having low concentrations of dissolved salts (below 1,000 mg/l) and other total dissolved solids.
10 In December 2017, the Company entered into a consent agreement and final order with the EPA with respect to alleged violations of the U.S. Resource Conservation and Recovery Act at certain facilities associated with the Gulf of Mexico and agreed to pay a penalty of approximately $1.4 million. There were no allegations that waste was improperly disposed of or released into the environment.
