Our oil and gas production operations take place in some of the most remote and environmentally sensitive regions in the world. Oil Search is committed to respecting the local environment in which we operate and minimising our environmental footprint.
All our exploration and production activities must meet our stringent internal environmental performance requirements. Our procedure governing environmental management outlines the key minimum performance requirements environmental management for all Oil Search activities. Our procedures on environmental assessment provide requirements to systematically identify and assess environmental aspects, potential impacts and their related risks throughout the asset and activity lifecycle.
We engage directly with government authorities to understand local environmental laws and guidelines and, ensure we achieve or exceed these requirements. To minimise the impacts of our activities on the environment and to ensure effective control, all our drilling, production, processing, refining and export activities in PNG operate under an environmental management system that is certified as ISO 14001 compliant.
