Environment

As a global citizen, we are committed to the development and application of best environmental practices industry-wide.

 Our goals are:

  • To minimise our footprint
  • To promote good environmental management in our neighbourhood

Perenco personnel must be committed to achieving these goals.

  • Managers are responsible and accountable for environmental matters.
  • All Perenco and contractor personnel remain responsible for their impact on the environment. They must intervene when they encounter environmentally unsound and non-compliant situations.

To ensure compliance with our Environmental Policy we :  

  • Have in place an Environmental Management System in compliance with all relevant regulatory requirements and with E & P industry standards.
  • Ensure that our Environmental Management System is understood and applied at all levels within the company.
  • Ensure that all employees and contractor's personnel are competent to undertake their work in an environmentally sound manner.
  • Emphasise environmental concern both on and off the work site.
  • Assess the consequences of all our activities on the environment and put in place appropriate control measures.
  • Maintain the physical integrity of our facilities to prevent accidental discharges of polluting substances.
  • Adopt the best available and economically viable technologies to minimize our impacts and improve our energy efficiency.
  • Set annual performance targets, with support plans.
  • Maintain current environmental emergency response plans.
  • Undertake regular emergency drills and exercises to test our capability to respond quickly and effectively to any environmental emergency.
