Science - Environment & Ecology / Oil and Gas Industry, US
English term or phrase: expected metric effects
A type of effect caused by pollution or environment related problems. Sorry that the context is scarce, but that is all I have. The company is an oil&gas giant and EBP means Environmental Business Plan
"3.1.2 Through the EBP process, goals and plans consistent with the L&S Environmental Mission, the L&S Standards of Environmental Care (SOEC), and Global L&S Sustainability Initiatives are established and stewarded to manage environmental performance and resource utilization improvements. These goals and plans should have clear time frames and designations of individual responsibility within the AU. This includes compliance with all regulations, mitigation of environmental risks, reductions of spills, emissions, discharges, slop, and waste. Environmental considerations, including pollution prevention and slop/waste management plans and environmentally related project work are incorporated into L&S Engineering budgets and the broader business planning processes consistent with Corporate EBP guidance.

Further, the AU's 5-year EBP is summarized within C-EDMS or other (Excel-based) "spreadsheets" covering, for each individual project/initiative: (a) Description, (b) Expected metric/EPI effects, (c) Financial impacts, and (d) Site/AU owner/contact. (2010 EBP Template example is in Reference 3.3.15.) Summaries are reviewed with Management at least one level higher than the AU annually. The EBP spreadsheets and overall status, including performance vs. targets and individual initiative status are reviewed with AU Management quarterly. In these quarterly reviews, the AU can choose to formally update the spreadsheets to reflect any substantive changes in the outlook, but that is not required. "

such as echo-planar imaging (EPI) (1) or spiral imaging (2)
is used in order to avoid loss of temporal information and
to suppress artifacts from respiration and cardiac functions
that are confounds to the challenge being monitored.
