Australian Petroleum Production & Exploration Association (APPEA) awarded Woodside Energy with Environment Excellence Award at Tuesday night’s APPEA 2015 Conference Dinner in Melbourne.
Eric Streitberg, APPEA Board member and Buru Energy Executive Chairman, said that the judges found that the Australian oil and gas company, Woodside, had shown consistent excellence in environmental management. This included strategic planning, risk management, monitoring and evaluation.
Streitberg said: “The company is an industry leader in community and stakeholder engagement, and in developing and implementing environmental projects that deliver public benefits.”
“Woodside has also shown a strong commitment to environmental research, particularly in marine science.”
Streitberg also said that Woodside has environmental management that practices “environment walks” to add to the traditional safety walks. The environmental walk involves leaders walking around work sites and using site-specific environmental management checks and questions to get more information for environmental risk planning workshops.
