Environment Protection & Performance
In order to assess the performance of the company in term of environmental compliance and the prevention of environmental pollution, SIPL is performing monitoring and collection of environmental data at regular basis both onshore and offshore operations.
- Improvement of Produced Water Handling
- Waste Management
- Air emission Quality
Onshore Processing Facility (OPF) SIPL is using fresh water from 1 (one) ground water well. Utilization of the ground water is intended for domestic purpose and fire water system.
230 ton (73% of total tonnage) hazardous waste in 2015 was oily water. It was contaminated water generated from cleaning wastewater treatment units at onshore processing facility. Currently all hazardous wastes is sent to licensed third party for further treatment and final disposal.
SIPL has requirements and procedures to prevent operational spills. We have programs in place to maintain and improve facilities and pipelines. Oil spills may still occur for reasons such as operational failure, accidents or unusual corrosion.
98% of produced water is injected to the well for pressure maintenance at offshore. Another 2 % of produced water flows to the Onshore Processing facilities (OPF) and it is treated before discharge to the sea in order to minimize potential impact to the environment.
Flaring of natural gas associated with oil production should be minimized as this is a waste of valuable resources, increases GHG emissions and contributes to climate change and global warming. Operational flaring occurs for safety reasons or during the start-up or shutdown of operation facilities.
Direct GHG emissions are emissions from sources that are owned or controlled by organization such as stationary combustion, mobile combustion, process emission and fugitive emission.
