Abstract
This
master
thesis
was
commissioned
by
Det
Norske
Veritas
(DNV)
and
was
conducted
at
the
department
of
Energy
Sciences
at
the
Faculty
of
Engineering,
Lund
University.
The
purpose
of
the
thesis
was
to
develop
a
structured
and
uniform
methodology
for
Best
Available
Techniques
(BAT)
assessments
of
oil-­‐
and
gas
installations.
BAT
is
defined
in
the
EU
directive
on
Integrated
Pollution
Prevention
and
Control
(IPPC)
(2008/1/EC).
The

was

of
this

its
associated

In
the

BAT
is
interpreted
chiefly
as
a
tool
to
compare
the
environmental
performance
of
different
techniques.
The
methodology
has
been
based
mainly
on
an
EU
reference
document
(IPPC
Reference
Document
on
Economics
and
Cross-­‐Media
Effects)
and
is
divided
into
seven
modules.
These
modules
have
been
inspired
largely
by
the
structure
of
life
cycle
analysis
as
described
in
the
ISO
14040
standard.
While
writing
the
thesis
we
have
concluded
that
many
of
the
evaluations
done
in
a
BAT
assessment
are
qualitative
and
must
be
performed
on
a
case-­‐by-­‐case
basis.
Moreover,
it
is
inherently
difficult
to
compare
different
environmental
impacts.
The
definition
of
BAT
is
relatively
vague.
As
a
result,
its
efficiency
as
an
environmental
tool
is
determined
by
the
attitude
of
those
who
conduct
them
and
of
those
who
base
their
decisions
upon
them. (Less)
