E&P operations – including drilling, completion, acquisition, seismic, etc. –must comply with a range of regulations relating to waste management, health and safety, and hazardous substances. Dana Energy is among the leading Iranian energy companies which have made good progress in waste management and HSE programs. The company currently has a strict policy in accordance with international standards.
The company’s headquarters in Tehran continuously receives reports by HSE officers based on offshore rigs located in Phases 15, 16, 17B &18B of the South Pars gas field’s development and also in the Nasrabad Salt dome onshore project located in the northeast of the central city of Kashan.
Dana Energy has so far passed seven million man hour mark without any lost time incident – an accident occurring at work that results in at least one full day away from work duties. That’s a unique record in Iran.
Environmental philosophy in Dana energy will be implemented by complying with the national and international legislation, regulations and laws related to the HSE, the Environmental concept, project particular specification and company standard, codes, guidelines and recommended practices. The following standards are to be used:
- ISO 14001
- Iran Environment Organization Protection
The company also executes national and international waste management protocols that meet all government guidelines, especially when it comes to onshore and offshore activities. We care about pollutants that might be released during both offshore and onshore activities. In Nasrabad, for instance, which is an onshore project, we benefited from domestic and international waste management standards. Environmental inspectors visited the site more than 15 times to ensure that all standards are met.
Even service companies that are involved in Dana Energy’s projects have to perform a couple of waste management and HSE procedure. We occasionally conduct environmental drills, including oil spill drills, to keep our skills sharp in case we need to react immediately.
