Chevron Earns Fracking Center Certification

Chevron logoChevron Appalachia is the first company to complete the Center for Sustainable Shale Development’s evaluation and verification process.

CSSD is a collaborative established last year between Chevron, Shell and other natural gas companies and environmental groups to set fracking standards.

Chevron earned full CSSD certification against all 15 of the center’s performance standards that serve as the foundation for CSSD’s independent third-party evaluation and verification program, established earlier this year.

To earn its CSSD certification, Chevron conducted a two-year preparatory process based on CSSD’s initial 15 performance standards for air and water that were developed to reflect leading industry practices in the Appalachian Basin.

Bureau Veritas audited the evaluation and verification process in June. This consisted of in-depth documentation review, staff interviews at Chevron’s offices and a field-based component that verified that Chevron’s operational practices were in conformance with applicable standards. The Bureau Veritas audit team visited 22 Chevron sites (16 in southwestern Pennsylvania, four in West Virginia, and two in Ohio) that represented Chevron’s geographic and operational locations throughout the Appalachian Basin.

Certification is valid for 24 months, after which companies can seek renewal. Companies can seek certifications in Air & Climate, Water & Waste, or both, concurrently.

Verification of conformance to the standards will continue to be monitored through the life of the two-year certification period.

All producers operating in the Appalachian region are eligible to apply for certification.
