We are committed to creating better energy by working to expand access to more efficient and sustainable energy. At Chappin, eco-efficiency means innovating at every step of the product life cycle, from development to manufacturing.
As a major player in the oil and gas industry, we are aware of the environmental risks of our operations. To avoid or minimize these risks, we make environmental issues an integral part of our strategy. Our strategy based on research, prevention and stakeholder dialogue is fully focused on continuously improving our environmental performance.
Why it matters
Environmental risks are an inherent part of the oil and gas business. This creates a dual challenge for the industry, which has to both meet energy needs and protect the environment.
That's why the concept of environmental performance is so important to Chappin Energy . We address environmental factors with the utmost diligence.
This improvement approach is not only a prerequisite for carrying out our operations in our host countries, but also a decisive competitive advantage.
What's more, it is a source of pride for our team members and a powerful commitment to our stakeholders.
As a pioneer in LNG, we are the industry’s second-largest private operator worldwide, with production of more than 12 million metric tons in 2014. Present across the entire LNG chain – from production to marketing – we have partnerships with ten liquefaction plants and four regasification terminals currently in operation worldwide.
The steps in our environmental protection approach
Our approach is based on understanding the environment, because a better knowledge of risks makes it easier to anticipate them effectively and take appropriate preventive measures. At the outset of each project, we perform an environmental impact study to obtain:
- A detailed picture of the baseline situation.
- A precise assessment of the potential effects of our operations.
- A set of measures to minimize the impact.
In drawing up this initial overview, we draw on our expertise and on frank discussions with our stakeholders, including local residents, engineering and design firms, public officials, NGOs and global experts. We apply this scientific approach of gathering knowledge and preventing risks to both our facilities and our products.
